Bountiful nature

Nature bountiful
A flirty wind,
Caressing the swaying,
Green Gulmohar,
Gracefully tall,
Reaching out to the
Heavily trampled
With its slender
Green fingers,
Spreading a parasol
To the sweating commuters
Stranded on the
Broken concrete road,
Waiting for the autos,
On this late-September afternoon
In busy Mumbai;
Nature bountiful,
A great relief in the
Urban desolation,
To the rampaging man,
Destroying nature
For making upscale
By destroying
The trees and the
Man groves.
