My friend Sandhya posted this wonderful photograph she clicked, of a yellow pumpkin creeper, with an interesting past.
It grew, perhaps by total chance, in a pot that actually held a jasmine plant. An inability to thrive at some point, in an environment not conducive to living, and this plant is now no more.
Such a pointed comment on our modern society, where folks emigrate from simple areas to those with slavish global standards, and suffer from being misfits.
And clearly , an ode , to a natural beauty .....

daughters of the Earth,
adorned with green flared outfits,
with a simple flower
find it difficult
to get a life
where size zero
fair, white and lovely flowers
and socialize in groups
the latest perfume....
