The Ascetic
by Swatantra Sharma

Among the lush greens
I found it standing
tall, bare and dry...
like life's reality,
past its prime....
oblivious to the
visiting seasons...
thin sun-dried hands
raised towards
the heavens
in a perpetual prayer....
An old tree...
standing in penance
for
the ultimate salvation???

Comment Old tree standing with raised branches as hands praying for ultimate salvation is a wonderful image symbolizing that!
