Journey Of A Seedling - Poem by Vashi Pandey
A seedling opened it's eyes meekly,
in the large open ground.
In the lap of earth, in midst of huge pines,
it seemed more lost than ever found.
Trees beside it saved it from the snow and storm,
rain nourished it while sunlight made it strong.
With time he learnt to face the thunders,
and shed the leaves of blunders.
Seedling bid farewell to his childhood,
spring came and along came the youth.
In his prime, the tree looked like a groom,
ornamented with buds all ready to bloom.
Bees celebrated the wedding, boozing on nectar and buzzing.
once tired made the buds their bedding.
Tree babysat the kids in shade and in heat,
Fruits took shape, some being sour some sweet.
Birds came chirping,
the showers of rain drops, kept the leaves drums beating.
Many took shelter on his strong branches,
as he stood tall, watching life's challenges and chances.
Roots of the tree were finally firm and traveled deep under,
but came the autumn knocking, finally he had to surrender.
Fruits found their own destinies,
leaves waved farewell, leaving him pale and skinny.
Birds found a new abode,
on the ones much younger and broad.
He was not the first one to be left in vain,
but somehow he still felt the pain.
Standing all alone in midst the chilly winds and fog,
the tree was still content and smiling.
As he watched one of it's fruit fallen next to a rock,
sprouting into a tiny yet beautiful seedling.
