The Potential

The jackfruit tree in my garden
planted decades ago
grew in size all the years
tall and huge it looks.

Leafy and imperious
a beautiful sight in all
Every now and then
I used to go close
to find if they blossomed

I lost interest in watching,
the tree grew tall.
Its branches resembled a canopy.
A great sight to behold.

Yesterday was different.
Seed like tiny buds hung.
Thought it could be the leaf curls.
Reaching near saw the little pale green ones
hanging in reliable intervals.

The tree has shown its potential.
