A Beautiful Tree - Poem by Momin Ali

A beautiful tree

A man under it

Playing a flute in stillness

People meandering to plough

Clad in dhoti-kurta

The man stops playing and starts walking

Trees, big and small trees

Large branches that gives shades

Even for an aggressor who cuts it

And makes a handle for ax

And to cut and remove the same tree

Forgives with love and shades it gives

He looks up at the tree

At the wind flowing through the leaves.

    Trees, big and small trees

    Large branches that gives shades

    Even for an aggressor who cuts it

    And makes a handle for ax

    And to cut and remove the same tree

    Forgives with love and shades it gives...........Of course it is true. Trees give fruits and shades to its enmies too. So nicely envisioned and beautifully presented. Thanks for sharing. Many thanks dear Momin, keep the ball rolling.......10
