I want to Shed all my fear

I Want to Shed all my fear

How I longed to be a Semal on days,
Of the year that teased me all along,
To face pricks and adorn the spikes,
On chest and stand like the giant guy.

Who can move his feet from the soil,
Where on earth could any soul catch ,
The space of heart that sheds shawl,
And glows crimson love on his cheek.

A devil enticed by a wise carpenter,
Bazil attempts to escape from his fist,
Semal laughs and keeps door shut,
I too want to humble evil in my mind !

How he stands as king of an empire !
I look at leaves and twirls they make,
The Semal sneaks hopes in my heart,
Birds go flitting from bough to bough.

When I admire little lilies and roses ,
The Semal takes it all in his stride,
He waves at me, whispers with love,
I drink nectar from his grand gaze.

Like leaves, I have to shed all fear,
To plant pleasures like his flowers,
Embrace him to absorb the power,
Bear with the bristles with all love.

      I've never heard of that tree but it is lovely, and I love that it signals the approach of spring, and I especially love your poem about it all.

      The flowering branch on the tree is beautiful. I have never heard of a semal tree. I don't think we have them in America. Lovely poetic tribute to your tree.

      Thank you Eric, for appreciating this poem. Trees are akin to humans. I know some of them and when they flower, they are worth-watching.

      John, The Semal Tree is also known as Silk Cotton Tree or The Bombax. It is mainly found in South eastern countries. India is also its home. I learn that it is also found in some parts of North Australia. Yes, it is really a very beautiful and huge tree. Thanks for appreciating the poem.

      Yes Venkatachari M, I so enjoy its beauty in the spring season. How large and dominant is its whole existence. One feels like a kid in its company. I like its large red flowers. I appreciate your kind comments and am glad to know that you too enjoy its beauty. Thank you very much.

      Beautiful poem on semal tree. The tree looks very beautiful during February and March with only flowers all over it. It is such a wonderful scene to observe. You have glorified it with your poem and weaving a message from it. Enjoyed a lot.
