Gulmohar

Gulmohar

A Poem by Penny
"

A tribute to the tree called ''Flame of the Jungle' for its vibrance and beauty. Love spring.

"
Oh blooming Gulmohar tree!
Are you red in anger,
Or scarlet in glee?

Author's Note

Penny
Can it be called a real haiku? I actually wanted to depict the beauty of this tree I had been admiring for days. Please review.

Definitely not in anger, glee may be, or calling all the eyes towards the flowers so that it can flatter when standing middle of other trees, great write, enjoyed, take care

Gulmohar ke ped hamare ghar se kuch door station ke pass padta hai, mujhe bahar jyada ghumna pasand nahi hai par jab un pedon par phool aa jate hai main wahi ja kar samay bitata hun. Nai idea bhi aa jate hai. Perfect tribute dear friend.

sahi kah rahe ho friend....jadu hota hai.
Gulmohar is one of favorite trees. When the flowers come on it you can barely see leaves.
And your short poem asks some really genuine questions only a beautiful mind can ask.

'Red in anger..scarlet in glee' Succint expression for 'Flare' tree. You have depicted it so beautifully.
