"Some Flowers" by Apu Mondal

Some flowers stay on
to sleep in peace
with death
on graves, gravestones.

Some dance with the wind
and shine with the sun
to lose their foothold
and fall to the ground.

Some dream of being
buds, drenching in rain,
soaking a bit of the sky
stay a little longer.

Some stand like pillar
in a lover's grip
allowing love to bless
or reel in dejection.

A few crown the beauty
of maidens on earth
adding eyes to passers by
or touching a lover's heart.
