Forest of mighty old trees

Raising high to threaten the skies
stand in attention, soldiers in rows.
Their green heads swaying wildly
brown arms open wide trapping light.

Bursting out of mighty rocks
arise the might banyan trees.
Roots digging deep in to earth
seeking water among rocks.

Peels of bark stripped out
by elephants that roam about.
Tiny nests adorn their crown
feeding creatures all around.

Primitive men to tribal folks
rested under its shady leaves.
Lives on this silent witness
watching evolutions fold out.

Hi Sanjai
I saw your blog now and found that you reside in Coimbatore. If so, you might be familiar with the forest region surrounding Kovai Coutrallam. I took this photo in that region.

Hi Souvick

Glad you liked my poems. Sigh...Your words on nature are so true... simple and blissful, yet the source of everything.
