Black and White...



\



















Yesterday, I met a fairy
She was looking stunningly beautiful
But to offer her, I only had a question
Which am carrying, Since childhood

I asked her, Dear fairy
You have all magical powers
And you are so beautiful
Why you are always seen in white?

She smiled softly 
And with all kindness and love
She replied
I can’t paint myself colorful
When your eyes are black and white.

  1. Beautiful words, Ruchi. Can you imagine being totally color blind, all of the beauty we would miss. Dogs are that way (they say).

    I love fairies and pretty little fairy gardens. I guess that's the English in my blood and genes coming out. The U.K. countries I have visited have plenty

  12. great piece of work. i see layers of meanings in those words, e.g. a clear divide of good and evil.

  17. Ruchi,

    First visit. Read all current poems. You write beautifully, though pessimistic at times. Hindi poems touches the heart.

    Take care
