any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
a role model
i have high respect for her - we need more brave girls like Malala
How proud I am to see Malala featured here. What an inspiration she is world wide.
A good butterfly will do that.
Sumana, what a beautiful and touching poem. Malala is an exceptional person and, as oldegg said, a real inspiration.
Sometimes it takes the young to melt our fears, but sometimes the old can do it too. Perhaps what it really takes is a heart of wisdom, found in either old or young.Whirling with Alberto
This is a beautiful tribute to a great girl. I like how you have used the light to describe Malala. She is one precious light.
She is the embodiment of courage in a world filled with equivocation. Very fine post.
Oh, I hope so! What that little one went through and how she rose up kindly to help others! What fears leave with those butterflies! I hope many around the world feel helped by Malala's victories.
she has provided inspiiration to many and hopefully she still continues to inspire those of this generation to stand up for what is important...
What a beautiful poem! So uplifting - I love the "flame of the sacred fire" and all the butterflies, inspired to fly free. Malala is a wonder! Love the photo of her, too.
A poem for my soul. Yay!!! Love this Sumana. Your words do rise like the butterflies. Nice to recognize the beautiful courage in such a lovely young woman.
I just know, butterflies evolve in stomach when i fear :P
there is still hope as long as people like her are around in the world.
The most amazing thing.. for once I think the Norwegian committee hit spot on with the shared prize.
Beautiful tribute Sumana!
an amazing tribute sumana!! lovely!
loved the final image. on a different note, i was struck by the irony of the peace prize going to an indian and a pakistani together.
A beautiful poem about a girl with a beautiful heart :) Very well said.
Nice tribute to the brave-heart... :-)
Great tribute to the new Nobel Laureate.
Such beautiful imagery to describe her ~ stars & butterflies and sun hidden in her heart, lovely :)
She is a brave girl!
This brought to mind the ability to transcend our physical bodies and let our spirits soar. I loved it, Sumana! A beautiful tribute.
Malala is a true inspiration! What a lovely write, Sumana :)
A beautiful soul. I very much liked the butterfly image in this piece. Perfect!
