Paper Flower

You decieve me with untruth;
Try decieving the Truth -

You wave a mesh of veils at me
A puff of smoke create;
Through them you hope I never will see,
The lies that you cremate.

Behold! The Rule of Truth and Lies
The paper flower is a lookalike
The fragrance cannot lie;
Forever it shall smell that of
Paper that tries to a flower be!


Inspired by this beautiful couplet told me by Meenakshi, a passionate admirer of Hindi Poetry.

"Sachhai nahi jhukti banavat ke usooolo se
Ki khushboo aa nahi sakti kabhi kagaz ke phoolon se"
