The windshield bore witness on their behalf While the speeding wheels scrambled over the hills Laden with flower gardens on the right and patches of beautiful crops on the left. It welcomed the spring that began its journey From city side to the scenic locale of this little town Away from the hustle of the traffic To the tapered sky-flakes that almost hugged the earth The windshield saw them through the skimmed mire To the massy blocks of brawny sands The sun that broke into their hesitance and awkwardness To the savage wind that nipped at their cheeks He sat them down several times To break the ice and resurrect the forgotten bloom But , like the sweep change in temperatures, They preferred to cling towards the opposite ends Late evening , they had reached the arch of a new haven A journey worth being pleased A winged butterfly was the first to approach them sitting on the bonnet with absolute ease. She was Lady Blue, fluttering her wings Watching them with immaculate admiration. The windshield grabbed this opportunity To zoom in more focus to get a clear view of the beauty. Under the crescent of the sun began to set Lady Blue greeted them with her golden lined wings As they stepped out to her courtyard There was neither a rainbow nor any dewdrops to gasp But the windshield heard the slight flutter of a heart. This spring had dawned during a hazy dusk, In those beseeching eyes which searched each other for unsaid words The seed of forlorn love which finally shed its cover And there bloomed a butterfly yearning for his nectar. As they kissed to a new beginning, something fluttered Amidst the radiant smiles and enriched souls Two hearts and two witnesses Lady blue sweetly resting on her bosom While the windshield proudly captured this memory!
