Union In Difference
The trees wave in true pleasure
As the breeze kisses in full measure
Calling us to be together
Making lovely world ever after.
But the grape and ape nature
Conflict like tiny caricature
Ruining all that we treasure,
All these years, as love connoisseur.
Yet, this is not the end
For grape is not ready to wend
And ape is not ready to bend
But to part away for them, is offend.
Despite all differences, amidst
We miss each other, in lonliness aghast
Realising that they're meant to blast
But not to shed off and part forever, like a rust.
Like a mist on window glass
Cover up all the visible pass
Me and you too compass
Shadowing what is irritant grass.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
The first stanza was written on 13.03.21 just as a chat conversation. The person advised to add more stanza and make a poem. Then today I read Sharad Bhatia's poem A grape and an ape. That gave me an idea to present the difference between man and woman and yet they are in unison to make the world look beautiful. Photo courtesy Pinterest.
