    The Magnolia Tree

    This Majestic Magnolia grew up poor
    In a rhododendron ghetto
    But at a blessed spot, where sunbeams intersected
    The muted aura of Earth.

    And now whenever I pass by it, it seems to be laughing
    Besieged in the slanted rain, in those little flakes of heaven
    Like a digital dream scattering pixel by pixel
    And in the nights I feel, I hear it sing
    Of the winds that blow away its flowers
    And of one---- who blows away the wind.

    And I wonder why all the five elements
    Came to pour their beauty, to coalesce into a tree!
    And why it seems to be brooding sometimes
    As if trying to speak, to narrate a tragedy!

    This evening, it looked sad, dreadfully bleak
    Its pink glory browned up in matter of one week
    Like some cancer of the plants or lightnings strike
    So I walked up to it and asked--- what happened, old pal?
    And touched for the first time its pale auburn skin
    You see, I had expected wood but ohhh it felt so human!!

      Tree huggers what would we do without them? I enjoyed this poem, because I could picture the tree in my mind. It's almost like I touched it myself. :)
