Stay Where You Are

Poem by Karan Shrestha

Stay, stay, all moving stay
To this gentle breeze, do not sway
Do not abandon on being betrayed
Or linger, or go astray

Do not fret. Yet. Beauty must fade. To innocence regret.

Here, the winter sun teases
The summer sun burns
And like the sun, the heart too: choses its own
The mind is ever so feeble –
