Tree's pedagogy of Life with Significant Lessons

Day by day it grows

Elongates at end, so is shadows

Branches bloom to balance

Each one in unique manner

Yet same with strong roots

I am LIFE that springily shoots

In air to fathom the dreams.

tree poetry on Life - MeenalSonal

Innocence vanishes with time

Mankind hypocrisy overshadows

When I look at foundation

Soon there is beam of realization

Again, gathering courage, I stand

With will strong I can gauge

With past reflections I pledge to shine.

Each bud transforms in blissful flower

Tons of efforts, care is showered

New surroundings grab attention

Few resists change, few take flight

Few return to share, few never care.

Yet I wish each one abundantly

Happiness in their path and some for me.


For some I am a relief

But for few, a hurdle, a barrier

I forgive the self-absorbed, as I always do

Recurrent compelling belief I instill

Panoramical LIFE divulge surprises

Stay strong, stay tall and composed

Like a tendril withstanding gust of wind.
