~ Roots ~

 

Whence in a pensive mood; musings have their say 

 

The glance lingering on the fading horizon in vague

stops mid-way on that banyan tree..

standing there since time immortal

much before my crawling days...

 

Stout.. dense ..dauntless ..sinewy

rooted for ever

a treasure priceless

unsung and unrealized mostly

 

Brooding further ..

 

Do I see a little hump there

mid- rib .. stooping a bit..humbled

 

a wee-bit less denser of the twigs and figs 

that withered and some twits that flew afar

into a nest of a new genre'

 

roots entwined now as a web of wrinkles 

criss-cross of experiences..

greying cells of wisdom...

 

forlorn but singing a saga of its own..

if only one could see and listen..

 

Brooding further..

 

reflection of my own roots; of my existence flashes by..

overlooked since eons of the resultant

metamorphosis undergone..

 

and unawares a prayer deep inside

whispers silently

 

you bore me and hived me 

now just be there ever to see me thrive a little more...

 

as when roots dismantle..where will my aches find shelter 

can there be spring there-after….!
