Oil Palm Tree

It is a tree
one belonging
to the palm
fascinates me.

It is the dimensions
the height , the width
the massiveness ,

It is like another
palm tree, stalky
bears fruits of
enormous size.

They being
used for myriad
purpose, right from
edible to bio fuel.

They pose a threat to
environment being ‘
the cry from West,
one of alacrity.

A bread winner
to the Malaysians
and Indonesians, hailed
as Black Gold,

A grace to be a planter
like mercy, blessings
are two fold, delivers
fortune and satisfaction.
