The short Jasmine and the tall Lily
would talk daily as they swayed
the gentle wind who would listen
the bright hovering sun who watched
the merciful rain falling to protect.
The moon shining bright every month
lighting them up as they slept unaware
looking over the ever so gentle beauties
blissfully lighting many a human heart
whose scanning eyes would pick them.
Their life spans so short to us humans
who would enjoy their beauty one day
not even bothering to look over them
bodies of two friends lying withered
their memories fading into quick sand…

I think the plants speak to each other and understand that they MATTER even if it’s only for a moment in time.

We do take most elements of the bounty that nature has bestowed upon us, however, the severe monsoons that caused floods this year is a warning that humanity must take heed and start looking up to nature.
