The Mango tree

The Mango tree

She was waiting for me  where I chose to
build a house   and set up my family. 
She too grew up,  but on her own. Sheltered  
my house from the  sun and  extended her  
sweetness every time for free.  Now, a 
grandma, her limbs are weak. I am afraid 
she will collapse over my home in the 
next April’s gale. And therefore I think of 
sending her off to an old-age-home,  the 
timber merchant’s yard. She protests not.
As if sensing my mind, she is all blooms 
as never before, and I’m in two minds.

    Such beautiful imagery and a unique take on the theme - I love the portrayal of her as an old lady I'm so glad 'she' flourished and didn't get chopped down - good luck in the contest:-) hugs jan xx
