Foreplay of desires under the bright moon-lit night
Pleasures heavenly, leading to a nascent sight;
Seeds planted, emerging victorious amongst the crowd
Flawless sensory skills endowed.
Fragile twig of a seedling- golden and green
Nurtured little self, with eyesight keen;
Upon the boughs, stronger and leafy
Bounding on trunks, gets soon beefy.
Surpassing winter, autumn and frost
Youthful spring blooms- glossed;
Butterflies surround amicable sturdy
Music, teens and dance in adventurous thirty.
Like a foliage radiant, smooth barks towering high
Toiling man beyond disdain, breezes for a sigh;
Blooms fade emitting seeds
Mature man offsprings his own feeds.
Treetop view, ultimate and wide
Final winter stair, barren man cried;
Solving puzzle of stepping the staircase
Mesmerise with memories or gloom to deface.
Each stairs loaded with appealing charms
Links blissful sunshine to alluvial berms;
Corroding with fear, nostalgia or pain
Audacious journey let not go in vain.
