Sacrifice

I never miss my morning walk through the small farm area behind my house whenever I get time and surprisingly there is always something awaiting me to capture and write about.

Let me share with you what I found today…

This is the fallen petals of banana flower. I saw them on the floor and arranged it like this to click a picture. As always thoughts started to sprout in my mind about the short life of these petals and yes I tried to put those ramblings of my mind into words which you can read now.

I was bright and beautiful when born

Red as blood and skin soft as velvet

I wrapped myself around my little ones

Guarding them from harshness of days

They grew and the day I scared arrived

My protection was a burden for them

Detatched from my life I rested on soil

My colours faded and my skin dried up

I waited there with a spark of hope

Till the day I was embraced by earth…

Have a great day friends!
