After Life – Shreya Sharma

A drizzle from the clouds

lights up a sunny weather,

a beautiful aftermath of different shades of sky.

A minute seed blooms

into a floriferous bliss,

turning my garden into a land of angels and flies.


A caterpillar undergoes a process of metamorphosis

to come out as a butterfly.

What do you name it as?

A complete fall off

or an after life?


The sun rises

And the sun sets everyday

This gargantuan earth

revolves around the sun

like a number of threads sewn

to adorn a handkerchief for a lover.


My mind whispers a heartfelt note to my heart

of the thoughts that would reside here in my absence.

And my laughter that would prevail in this space,

and the effervescent kisses I have planted

would exist after my death.
