Banyan Ban-Ban

A   L   O   H   A  !
THE BANYAN TREE SONG by Nguyên Lê on Grooveshark
 of our youth,
rich at morning,
sorry we swung
from your

 Rapunzel Spun
you Mesmer
my eyes

 Aerial roots 
  above the ground
gravity - growing

Humble finger buds
long to reach
into soil.

 bud shoots
which soar
to the ground, 
 taking root 
becoming trunks;
a forest
of sister trees

That beckoning space 
long lingers
 in one's thoughts;
even later 
at the show-

Thanks for visiting!
                           Warmly, cloudia

I enjoyed this post very much as it reminded me of the first time I ever saw a banyan tree. I stood under one and was totally mesmerized. Have a great day Cloudia.

I love the banyan trees, are these usually found in a mangrove swamp??

I love these trees. Enjoyed spending time with them while I was in your neck of the woods.


Love how you threaded that last photo into this post - lovely spaces indeed. Banyans are a wonderful sight in Hawaii!

I do love banyans and remember swinging from them as a child too. I think my favorite banyan is the one in Lahaina.

My first Banyan was in Maui. I was totally fascinated.

I am actually sitting still and reading blogs.....miss you all.

The banyan in Lahaina is nice, with it's twinkle lights underneath when strolling at night. Love the hat with all it's flowers! DrumMajor

Invariably I would get a golf ball stuck in one on any course I played on Oahu. I notice that all those cane fields out by Ewa Beach are now golf courses and resorts. Aloha
