Banyan Tree - Poem by Aftab Alam

Earth needs seed,
Seeds need mud
Thought needs eyes to behold
Out of conceived thoughts
An artist sprouts
A plant grows and grows
Becomes the Banyan Tree
No care is needed than.
It cares for all
A gathering always there
At the sunrise
And when sun dies
And of course at noon
Poet stood reciting poem
To ease the mind
And for happiness
Like a banyan tree
Budha acquired the wisdom
Under the Banyan tree
At Gaya, the Magadh empire//
