Family Tree - Poem by mazHur Butt

Plant a tree they say
I planted 5 trees in my life
One bore shade and fruit
to my heart's pleasure
the 2nd just provided shade
Not bad
The third shed its leaves
and withered in spring
the 4th am still watering
to keep her green
the 5th grew tall and tall
barely gave some shade
but enough fruit to make one's mouth water
one day when i sat under it contemplating
suddenly a coconut dropped on me
and almost cracked my skull!
