sweet chaos, butterfly wings and bear paws

dismal truth, perhaps some eldritch clatter

extramundane whistle without a cause

an agonist finding the world’s flatter

in a brick stove cooking casserole

cooked with lean meat and veg wrapped with batter

numerous stuff without our control

a quiet man hardened with experience

one day he’ll get out of jail and parole

as the butterfly flicks its wings and hence

and the bear eats his honey with its paws

life carries on so let’s not be serious

the boy’s wounded, mum helped him with a gauze

kissing it better and the boy smiled

after the show there was a great applause

and so in the woods we find their love child

bravely we asked him what is the matter?

there’s nothing but time to be reconciled

so back to sweet chaos and everything

wait for what it brings, life is full of zing

sweet chaos, butterfly wings and bear paws

extramundane whistle without a cause*

can
you see
flying free
so beautiful
fluttering in the bree
in front of my eyes seamlessly
from a moth to butterfly as usual
seeing the dainty pattern as the wings span
flapping in the air like some musical
the rhythm so acoustical
as busy as a bee
so dutiful
like at sea
with glee

the butterfly effect
waves alter and things change
birds tweet, poems strange
sleek view and aspect
balsa boat which shipwrecked
you and I seem estrange

at the bottom was murk
I made some cutting notes
which you frequently quote
I glide and make a smirk
which make you so berserk
don’t know what our endnotes

I shake my head and go
life is so and it flows***
