What does Earth Day mean to me?
I pondered over it an entire day
If I can feel or establish
A connect with earth
Then every day would be Earth Day
Not just for me, but for everyone
Having a terrace garden of my own
With a few flowering plants and herbs
I had a chance to observe
At close quarters
The behaviour of plants.
And it is helping me
Develop an intuition
About their condition.
“Why are the leaves yellow?
What are ants doing on this plant?
How come water is draining away?
When will this bud bloom?”
I have activated a connection
That can deepen
And help me scale and work out
Self vis-a-vis Earth
Have you thought about You vis-a-vis Earth?
