Wisdom Tree
by Dr. Uma Asopa
Bookmark and Share
  A little grain of earth,
some moist air is all it needs.
The Pipal grows on wall,
between rocks, on barren reefs.

Many green hearts it bears
on its body that have veins
woven like honeycombs;
but they do not beat.

Summer scalds them yellow,
winds flutter them enough,
but the leaves remain alive
for weeks.

Some women offer prayers
to the tree, pour a little water,
or tie on it a sacred thread.
The tree blesses them with a long life.

They would prosper.
An age- old Asian wisdom will further.
Some trees will be felled
as others will be worshiped.
