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!
