The ‘Invaluable’ Bud

amulya leona

One day, a rose bud
Spoke to all the flowers
In the garden
‘Let all flowers in the world blossom
Let every flower live
In peace and tranquility ….’

The Gardner was furious
Delirious
And thought
‘If this bud blossoms,
It is dangerous …’

He plucked it out from the sapling
Tore it apart
And threw it in a heap
Of rotten flowers

Little did he know
That somewhere some other
Would recognize
And some other bud would rise
To preach flowers to blossom
