The green grass is trampled upon
The shrubs wither due to lack of care
The bushes catch fire as they flourish
The flowers sit in glamour vases
Till they slowly wither away
The trees stand still, fall after fall
Till one day they too meet theirs
What difference does it make
If born a plant or as a human?
We share a similar biology
Be it Botany or Zoology…

Loved the concluding pair of lines . Nice analogy Sunith!
Thank you Radhika. am glad you liked it.
Shukriya mere dost!
And same goes with feelings.
Well written piece.
Thank you for the appreciation
Wow, powerful piece and oh so true… it is so satisfying to read words written by people like you Sunith who do NOT privilege humans over Nature…. if many thought the way we do we could perhaps live lives in harmony.
I agree, Sara. Thank you.
It does not make any difference…all living things have the same fate…
Thank you Indira. I was waiting for one to answer and so glad it was to be you 🙂
That is the reality of all the lives in our universe. Well expressed. Especially the last four lines in concert with the Om Purnam Adah mantra emphasizing the connectivity we have in all the universal creations, in biology or zoology.
Thank you Sir for adding meaning to these lines…
You are welcome, dear.
The cycle of birth and death is a viscous one – be it human or a plant. Nice comparison, Sunith.
Thank you for the appreciation 🙂
It was my pleasure, Sunith
Thank you so much
Everyrhing in the end leads to the same place…you made it clear poetically
Thank you Akhila
