The Baobab Tree – Poem To My Grandpa By Donald Dodger Marindire

The Baobab Tree – Poem To My Grandpa

 

by Donald Dodger Marindire.

 

Its leafy canopy offered shade for weary travellers the baobab tree

Its gnarled trunk betraying age old wisdom transcending galaxies

Younger Acacias sprouted around it telling wild tales and incredible falacies

But forever rooted in tradition the old giant opened his roof and made them see

The world for what it was,a blank page to write one’s story unrestrained forever free

 

His milky fruit gave his offspring’s rumbling tummies hope

Some were thankful used the succulent fruit to fuel their ascent to the top

The foolish were greedy packaging his produce then setting up shop

Unknowingly selling their souls exchanging their heritage,gifts given freely for them to cope

With a cold world  bearing allegience to the cult of dog eat dog

Till he reminded them of self worth and the doctrine of we are all we got

 

He lived many years but at long last the grim reaper wielded his axe

Even as they paid their last respects

They could not help but notice how the serenity he exhuded in life had accompanied him to his death

The forest was forlon his branches nolonger home to chirping birds

The whispers of wisdom in his leaves leaving earth as he drew his last breath

But the story of his generosity is forever etched

In many a young heart so even in death

My grandfather the Baobab tree is our guardian angel and in his eternal embrace we are forever blessed.
