Root


Root

 

ONE

 

The water of the well

increases

As the water level of the river

increases

 

Root of water

TWO

 

I touch the feet of my father

Every day

In a pair of eyes

Bounty of dewdrops

 

Root of tears

 

THREE

 

I smile

As you do

Cry

When you do

 

Root of feelings

 

FOUR

 

These days

I could neither sleep not take food

Suffering from fever

 

In my pain

Mother too having sleepless nights

 

Root of soul

 

FIVE

 

As the roots grow

The twigs and leaves grow twice as much

Green smile of the budding leaves

Contributed by root
