The Short Journey

Dug this out after reading Pragya's piece 'Lost Innocence.'

A flower blooms
A pristine fragrance spreads
Then loses itself
In the unchaste currents
Of the mundane stench

Life sprouts
And innocence radiates
But is soon strangled
In its short journey from
The womb to the tomb!

Jai Hindustan,

Hope you don't mind this aging UK punk generation bloke crashing his way onto your fantastic site?

Great poetry too. Thanks.
