A Symbol

tree-of-wisdom

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…
