lying under a banyan tree

Lying in the meadows' nest
under your green greatness,
remembrance of my Grandma's face
oh banyan, my lullaby days!

Under your green greatness
listening to murmuring leaves,
oh banyan, my lullaby days
just like from my Grandma's lips!

Listening to murmuring leaves
a history hundred years old,
just like from my Grandma's lips
the fairy tales that were told!

A history hundred years old
want to listen before I sleep,
the fairy tales that were told
sure in my mind will creep!

Want to listen before I sleep
story of your younger days,
sure in my mind will creep
like morning Sun's golden rays!

Story of your younger days
remembrance of my Grandma's face,
like morning Sun's golden rays
lying in the meadows' nest!

    Kashinath,love your story telling style. I think this kind of tree sounds marvelous to lie underneath and I enjoyed reading this one a lot. Boy, I can barely keep my eyes open and I still had comments to get to. And a blog I wanted to do, etc etc. EEEEEEEE

    What a great poem, Kash. It speaks highly of your love for your grandmother as well as the banyan tree. It's amazing how well thoughts flow when we are communing with nature. Best wishes in the contest! Love, Carolyn
