Neem Bestow

Space for Neem

Standing tall my neem
however hot the earth scream
it’s cool under your shadow
a unique layer of tree
blows a kind of wind
soothing the body and mind.

You grew up breaking the walls
bordered with neighbors
to show up unity is strength,
though we take care not
you support unconditionally
purifying environs n provide shadow.

You send nostalgic feel
through your cool breeze
triggering the lost sense or memories
of moments that never return,
glad I borrow you from the neighbour
and what u bestow is unparalleled. 

P.s Was having some problem in getting constant net connection for last few days and I have complained and waiting for them to resolve. Until then pls bear

The picture has the neighbor's Neem tree outgrown into our courtyard. The neem tree cracked down a part of the wall and it was rebuilt leaving space for neem.

Your verse is so great. Make room for the tree as it does give so much to the earth.

I also like the shade of neighborhood trees. But planting and maintining it myself will be slightly difficult ;)

That neem tree must be an important tree! Good to know that neighbours do not fight over the tree and the broken wall.

Neem tree is beautiful with small leaves. It is good that you have it. The breeze is good for health!

What a powerful picture and poem to match it. As if to say, there's no need to put a fence here, we are not divided. Well done.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
