A Bouquet of Many Blooms

POETRY FORMAT, 27 Jun 2022

Dr Usha Roopnarain – TRANSCEND Media Service

A deserved praise I give.
There are no binaries
…only bouquets
Many blooms make up a bouquet.
Like a mosaic of broken tiles…
Or a patchwork of soft smiles…
Or a Thali of many flavours…
A rainbow of many colours.
No binaries but  ALWAYS
Including others.
Like a tapestry of many threads.
That’s the way unity is spread.
Like a bubbling pot of cuisines
Why does sorrows still stream?
Torment, tears and terrorism have become our only themes.
Perhaps more unity will stop the angry screams!!!!


Dr Usha Roopnarain – Former parliamentarian in the National Assembly of South Africa, social activist and passionate about human rights and gender equality.
