Potted Plant Flowers
Child Brought Up Flying Colours
While writing this Haiku the following thoughts came into my mind, if you can give time to read, it I think you shall understand it fully.
I have got so many potted plants in my house garden and my wife keeps updating them. It is such a thing, you have to keep updating them to make the plants live healthily. Almost on a daily basis your eyes and hands have to work on them. Seeing to their growth; watering, cutting, dressing, plucking and re-potting them at intervals. Patience and Energy required.
Its almost like bringing up a child. At home we feel so, and accordingly take care. When these plants grow and show up you feel so happy. The pots were actually five hundred in number, now I think they have reduced to around three hundred odd, as several pots broke. So, I keep saying I have another hundreds of children to take care.
We, the other day re-potted our plants, within a few days the Jasmine plant grew so well and has given such beautiful flowers which you are seeing in the picture. It is just beside my bed near the window, it gives the Jasmine fragrance. I was surprised to see the flower petals; I counted the petals they are from 18 to almost 27 in number in one flower. Usually they do not give so many petals as I have seen so many Jasmine plants.
These Jasmine flowers are used for our Pooja to offer to the Gods and as you know women in India use them to decorate their hair dress.
It’s the same case with children. A child when born we take such a lot of care to up bring it, I need not give any details about it as everyone does it. After they grow to be young adults and show up and come out with flying colours one feels so happy about their achievements. The efforts and love given to them has come in return, don’t we feel so as parents. Otherwise what we expect from our children. We as parents do not expect them to bring money for us isn’t? The laurels, the love and the achievements they bring are sufficient.
I am happy to tell you that I have two daughters, the elder one is a Software Engineer and is now working in a MNC, and the younger one shall become a Doctor as she has joined medicine.
Enough for now, if this post shall bring and give something to all readers I am done with it.
Thanks so Much for your visit, likes and comments.
These Dogs I Brought them from the Streets when they were Puppies, having them with us and making them grow with love they are now showering happiness. At home they are three and I have one more ( Name is Topsy) at my factory who never goes anywhere and comes running and sits or sleeps besides me.
