A Flower To Auroville Mother-36 - Poem by Indira Renganathan

Zinnia, (Common zinnia
Botanical name: Zinnia elegans)


Zinnia, big and small and colours all
Single and double and semidouble
Zinnia of dwarf and medium and tall
For borders or pots cut and whole
Zinnia, no trouble in low, medium soil
With oval leaves rough yet beautiful
Zinnia, its essence to lighten the soul
For it's from sun's flowery sprawl
