A Symbol


image credit : google+

the lines of  age gallantly show

posing valiantly behind a grin

fearless salad days still aglow

telling the previous life had been


the past that he justly outgrown

sheltered humbly the lives unknown

humans dwell his humble thin shade

countless lives have been summarily saved


this tree, a symbol of the golden gramps

a hero, his story deserving to be told

the crooked grooves dashed like a lamp

glitters on the bark as history unfolds…

if i could see the other side of the horizon

how wide it is, the vastness of its boundary

the aureole of its halo, the limits of its brim

if my eyes wont tell, maybe my mind will break

the enclosure of the mysterious citadel…
