A Man And The Tree Poem by M. Asim Nehal

A Man And The Tree

Rating: 4.8

A man started to wonder
about the life of a tree
standing at a place
without any movement
how it must be feeling?
same sun from same place
same moon from same place
same wind, but from different directions
Life must be boring and redundant!

And to strengthen its place
and for smooth growth
the roots go deep down the ground
the stem grows thick and hard
look at me, I am moving
from place to place
and I see the different things
from different place
same sun but rising from all directions
same moon, but from different horizons
The world for me is a playground
and I keep moving
I come back to this tree only
when I am tired or hungry
and I thank Almighty
for these two legs without roots…

I love the symbol on the tree being something the narrator comes back to, like family or another special place. Also the perspective from both the tree and the narrator. Thanks for this!

While we think about philosophy of life and compare this with tree and we feel this world as playground. Same moon, same sun, same wind but perceptions as per our actions differ. Still a man wonders about life of a tree. This is interesting definitely.....rating 10 for this.
