    ----- THE PLANT OF LOVE -----

    One evening in the season of spring
    In the echo of the music of songbird sing
    I saw you standing near the wooden swing
    With a pot in hand having a small sapling.

    The last few sun rays were falling where you stand
    Your fingers full of mud smells like beach sand
    You sprinkled water on the floret from another hand
    And placed it with other plants at the railing's end.

    In your balcony, no place was spare
    Full of Roses, jasmine, pentas everywhere
    Herbs like aloe and basils were also there
    But you with that yellow flower is what made me stare

    Me from my balcony in every sundown
    Secretly watching you while walking around
    You talking to plants trying to hear their sound
    Your garden is like your own small town.

    I didn't know when this became a routine
    This constantly gazing and smiling in between
    Watching you flourishing your garden green
    While surrping the tea, is now my most favourite thing

    Then one day suddenly
    Your eyes caught mine. We waved and smiled.
    You wiped the dirt off your cheek keeping trowel aside
    And said:
    "You watch me I know, every single thing I do
    When you walk with a pen, I also keep watching you
    Is there anything you really want to say
    Or this is nothing but just my dismay"

    I was stunned having nothing to say
    Gathering some courage I replied, hey!...
    "Like these growing petals in the golden hue
    The times of our love will always be new
    So I here confess, in the sky shining blue
    I want that yellow flower along with you."

    You cut those stems into two parts
    And said, "keep it with you as my heart
    So this is my love for you, sweetheart
    It'll keep us connected, even when we're apart."

    I grew it in the brown pot of mine
    The plant of love bloom in divine
