A short story that came to my mind looking at the small plant growing off the roots of a coconut tree. There is so much such few words can convey – so many plots that you can make out of a small poem or paragraph. Photo courtesy – my Malpe trip.
Enjoy the micro-fiction. And let me know what you thought of it. 🙂
It had taken a loan of life
From the roots of another
Its life could be sustained
If it could borrow a little more
But the other stopped lending
And so it willed to survive at any cost
Who would win?
Goliath the giant tree or
David the young sapling?
