For a New Era of Green Hope

For a New Era of Green Hope.2

Leafless and lifeless

stands the old sheeshum, lost in

lush green memories of

all the springs gone by!

The veteran of the glorious green world,

now stands reduced to

a mere skeleton, yes of course…

a sculptured, artistic one.   

It keeps standing tall and upright,

determined not to give up

until the axeman strikes,

chops off the branches and

cuts the mighty trunk into logs

to finally remove it

from the scene.

How gently, gracefully, the pensive soul

makes way for an all new,

tiny, nascent green shoot,

and…a new era of – green hope!
