Earth Day

A ‘mogra’ plant has sprouted several buds.

 

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?
