A Blissful Soul


Been always in a house

where there is  a garden

fruit trees being too many

guavas, mangoes and sapottas

all seen over and above

luscious they are in full

organic they be  in all

as I never use any chemicals

both as manure and pesticides

grown naturally without any artifice

they serve the squirrels first

then eaten up by my cook and chauffeur

in the company of my gardener and maid

the rest comes to my table  once in a way

I eat them with a love and happiness

being grown in my own soil  with  great care

of course it is my gardener who nurtures

let him  have the fair share being  first in line

gives  he to his colleagues

a gesture to be appreciated

alas! before he could lay hands on them

the squirrels take the plum

choose the best of the lot

enjoy and be contented with the excess

I find myself the last in the rung

have to accept it without much ado

as I know sharing is a blessing

I am blessed by growing and extending to others

a blissful soul I could turn to be in  all time.
