Neem Niwas tales


WP_000776   WP_001110

The neem tree pruned and

shorn of its rich foliage

is melancholic

The bell on its long arm tolls

Birds and beasts come and console


Watch the green barbet

chomp noisily on guavas

in our back garden

Red beak green coat and sharp eyes

He makes a comic picture

Squirrel 1

Squirrels scamper up

and down the neem tree all day

doing business

in a smart casual way

Food and fun with lots of play

Parakeet on fish palm 3

A parakeet perched

on the fish palm shrieks loudly

calling to his mates

Bright green and hungry yellow

Shadowy soft and mellow
