It’s April of 2021 and Day 25 of the A to Z challenge. This year, I am doing the theme – “Travel the World.” I am visiting countries from A to Z and presenting stories with 8 line poems.
Day 25 Country: Yemen
Dracaena Cinnabari or dragon blood tree, is a dragon tree native to the Socotra archipelago, part of Yemen. The tree has a unique and strange appearance. It is so called due to the red sap that the tree produces. Its fruits are small fleshy berries which turn from green to black as they grow, and then become orange when ripe. The trunk and the branches of the tree are thick and stout and display two-way branching, where each of the branches repeatedly divides into two sections. This is a species selected for making conservation related decisions, because protecting these species indirectly protects many other species that make up the ecological community of its habitat.
And that gem,
For no one’s mistake,
You secretly look for,
When you say,
You let go because that is the way. You let go because of the pointless rules. You depart because you know why and no one else. Then, that, secretly defines you a ‘nothing’.
