The blooming pride!

Barbados Lily, Easter Lily (Hippeastrum puniceum)

‘How do I call thee?’
What do I tell thee?
You spring surprises
year after year
You stand upright
with head bowed
like an erstwhile Indian bride
all bright, beaming with coy & pride!

It matters not to you
whether watered or not,
loved or not, cared or not!
Oh!!… I forgot!!!
Human you are not!
You bloom untaught,
never fathoming thoughts!

Barbados Lily
Barbados Lily, Easter Lily (Hippeastrum puniceum)

Someone had planted thou
a long time back though
and the soul departed,
forever parted,
some long time back though,
the soul that watered, loved & cared!

Thou hast not forgotten
the blooming days &
the blooming ways!
You stand apart in the spot
a little far apart from flowering pots
 water & care you get naught
But matters not to thou
loved or not, cared or not
for human you are not!
