Where the tree dips in water, ripples propagate wavy motion, Meandering with zealous vigor in memories of yesteryears As eerie pause encounters skeletons of bittersweet emotions. Emerald green leaves flutter, beset in spring’s windy signals Recalling first kiss of a young couple, quivering in tiny ripples; Again and again they came here, until a day said nevermore. Its branches sway depth of water reminiscing of a youthful girl Treasuring her secret wishes--a penny in the wind she whirled. She now comes with grandkids, to cheer its beauty evermore. A sigh of distress echoes there, tearing bawl of hearts broken By shattering glass of wine-bottles in a nasty drunken break-up, And lonesome man’s solo visits escaping his perturbed world. Life it has cherished, death it has grieved, as time took its toll, But seeing happy faces it enters new cycles full of green gusto; Wider it grows to offer its shade to summers of troubled souls. Colors it blends in romance of sights invoking vibes of autumn Shedding its leaves, floating on dreams, in colors of meadows— A nature’s painting preserved forever, adorning life’s museum.

First off... that photo looks exactly like the Angel Oak tree I once saw in South Carolina (reportedly, the oldest tree in the US). Second ... this is quite the time capsule of images. Through thick and thin, through joy and loss ... the majestic tree has seen it all and offers its shade and comfort indiscriminately. Beautiful. I can see why it placed first.

That is an old tree, my friend. A monument, of sorts, that you have served well with your dedication (of sorts ;). To think how many years, how many joys and tears found in its memories. I love the way you have celebrated its majesty. You both deserve a hug. Kudos, Vijay :)

Trees bear witness to so much and they store the weather in their rings. If they could speak they would share stories of so many things. I loved this wonderful poem Vijay and it is so deserving of your awards. xxoo
