BanyanHand painting Ink ArtHer first everBySakina Minhaj ShikariBanyanEvery time I see an old oneI bow in humilitySeeing it spread out wideAlways expanding
 
Expansively sharingAll its bearingA landmark upholding historyComforting even in its shadowWorshiped,the abode of MokshaStooping but never leaningWhere the bulbuls restand singSuch a fatherly lapthat nurtures,giving all of itselfNot a thing wasted,from fruit to rootor skinEverything servesother beingsI am in aweevery time I see an old oneadmiring how it spreadsI wonder how it does,branches stooping andturning to rootsFirmly groundedEver growing rootsshoot stoopedbut umbrella spreadsuch benign shade
