Banyan Aji

This photo of a Banyan tree, aged at the neck, so to speak, was posted by my blogger friend Magiceye, as part of his Mumbai Daily : Monochrome Mania series.

Nature has an unusual way of sometimes replicating outlines of human face-shapes. And sometimes it brings to mind the aging neck of a long-gone grandmother in her 80's.....

a versatile young woman
extending her mind
to many sides,
and reaching
far and wide
in native medicinal matters,
great attention to her
and green connections,
she now stands
in place,
in her golden age,
still majorly green,
unable to battle
the wrinkles
at her neck.....
