I Look At Greens Of My Life’s Grey Garden - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak

I watch Madhu Maltee bloom in my garden—
Long fingered flowers, some red, some still white,
The reds born in light and the whites at night,
Deprived of day light and warmth of the sun,
Which, ‘pon begetting day’s sun to red turn,
Unlike ripe age whose red hast long turned grey,
Lost who has child’s sense of now one sad day,
In growing old, ah grey wisdom to earn.
These flowers, like all greens perhaps, do know
The value of now, not yet the grey kind,
Who, to Nature’s gift, passing moment blind,
Lives on time lost, hollow dreams to follow;
Wizened of late, I watch greens grow in awe,
In wonder, how it feels living the now!
