What is enough time

flowing from dark to darkness

days or years away


a butterfly…

needs no answers

to flutter


lady bugs

their lives passing by

on my window sill



living like a butterfly

each moment is enough

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) is a celebrated Indian poet who won a Nobel Prize for Literature in recognition of his work “Gitanjali” —he wrote it in Bengali and then translated it into English. The 1913 English translation includes an introduction by W.B. Yeats.
