Banyan Tree


Earth needs seed,
Seeds need mud
Thought needs eyes to behold
Out of conceived thoughts
An artist sprouts
A plant grows and grows
Becomes the Banyan Tree
No care is needed than.
It cares for all
A gathering always there
At the sunrise
And when sun dies
And of course at noon
Poet stood reciting poem
To ease the mind
And for happiness
Like a banyan tree
Budha acquired the wisdom
Under the Banyan tree
At Gaya, the Magadh empire//

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
