The Cotton Tree
by Dr. Sunil Sharma
Bookmark and Share
 

It stands out
Amid other trees,
Alone,
Distinguished,
In this season of
Some flowering,
Some totally bare trees;
Attracting attention of an alert
Passerby, instantly
To that white tree;
The fluffy pods
Looking like puffed-up ice-balls
Stuck up delicately,
On the brown rugged branches,
Like tempting candy;
The bright flowers,
Creating a falling stream
Of pure, soothing snow,
On this hot day of
Early summer,
Near hectic Mumbai.

Comment Beautifully flowing poem!! Especially liked the lines:

Creating a falling stream
Of pure, soothing snow,
On this hot day of
Early summer,
