Ekta Somera

the dreamer – A Poem by Ekta Somera

the dreamer
by Ekta Somera

the wind carried a rhyme
quite out of tune
and the butterflies followed
like wildflowers
draped from the clouds
the dreamer watched from afar
trapped in a jar of caterpillars

mocked for the way she dared
to fly before earning her wings
the caterpillars refused to believe
they could ever be as free
as petals surfing on the wind
but
trapped in a jar
the dreamer taught the others
how to conceive passionate credence
for who we are is far more important
than what we appear to be

yellow paint – A Poem by Ekta Somera

yellow paint
by Ekta Somera

yellow
the colour of paint
van gogh ate
to make him happy
such is the irony
we romanticize daily
when we love
all that destroy us

for the day will come
when the oblivion
consumes us
and all that is
will become all that was

so to merely embrace
all that brings us closer
to our inevitable demise
may be an essential
part of life
