Stills by Daipayan Nair
When I revive you by
from a past of being torn,
being plucked with force, being made
a lover's bouquet without choice
How could I ignore the silent breeze,
its own share of pollens
swaying your mind for a while
Now, there are two roses left:
Which blooms after death
The other that blooms before it
To the flower, I can say, 'it's full of beauty'
even when the garden isn't full of it
Your petals around it
is just your photograph.
