Orange Tree


stands  a dwarf
amidst the  huge.
mango and jackfruit trees.

Mango and jackfruit  spread 
 far and wide , present a canopy
towering over the garden.
Picturesque to espy.

The orange tree 
reaches to their middle
competes with them 
in yield.

 Its fruits, no bigger 
than gooseberries, taste 
 sweet and sour,  could be
 gulped  in one mouthful.

I collect hundreds of them,
 extract the juice, to make 
orange squash.. A delicious drink 
 I store for months.
