Stubborn Peepul Emerges

IMG_20170417_115240

Stubborn peepul * finds

a crack in the wall!

The seed germinates,

grows roots and leaves, 

and lo, the green plant

emerges, teasing…daring

the faithfuls,**

The small wonder

threatens to grow into

a huge tree, gobbling the wall,

uprooting the building, and  

covering the entire area…

of course, in exchange

of green shade.
