This yellow little butterfly
Fluttering over bright green leaves
Would not settle a while
Tearing my view all across
Every moment she flew.
Beyond those fences.
I sat behind those grills of balcony
Watching her flight
A little induced,lest the neighbor
Should catch me wrong as watching..
Those fences all around
I know,were too small
For me to cross over
Still I sat watching dare not to...
Capturing the images in my captive mind
She is here again, fluttering in front of me or maybe mocking
I sat still behind the grills of the balcony
Following her flight over and over
Till she evaded the sight.
