She has reclaimed her space back!

I was astonished to see the deep red rose

Still smiling bright on the top of the bush

It was there, yesterday and the day before too

No eying eyes and prying hands in sight

Nothing less than a miracle to live so long

As if it has reclaimed its space back!

I was strolling down all alone on the street

Never heard so much silence ever in the city

Only some light pouring down the windows

And a kitten resting in the centre of the road

No fear to be shooed away by marching feet

As if it has reclaimed its space back!

I was in my balcony, sipping ginger tea

Sky was too blue with no mourning cloud

Unusual sight of flocks happily rushing all-around

Breeze felt so light, all burdens it had shed

You can hear the Mother Nature giggling

As if she has reclaimed her space back!
