Happiness is Like a Butterfly
 
Happiness is like a Butterfly
attracting everybody towards itself,
trembling and falling
from flowers to flowers.
If you try to seize it,
quickly it turns it’s gaze,
to other directions.
The more you chase it,
the more it eludes you.
But when you divert,
your glance from it,
them calmly and serenely,
it comes and sits beside you,
shedding its beautiful wings,
and mesmerizing you.
This is what is called happiness,
an unexpected thing.
 
 
 
Landscape of Life
 
We often draw
landscape of life
filling it with colors
of our choice
and outlining it
according to our wishes
making it very beautiful
as per our desire.
But these are mere imagination,
far away from reality
and can never be fulfilled.
 
 
 
Being Escapist
 
Sometimes it is better,
being an escapist,
to remain aloof
from worldly affairs.
Affairs or mis-happening
creating turmoil in heart,
disrupting the peace of mind.
Like Poets of the romantic age
Byron, Wordsworth, Keats,
Shelly & Coleridge
diverted their attention
towards nature
derived pleasure from
every natural phenomena.
Creating masterpieces,
still cherished by
the unnatural world
I wish if I can be like them.
