The Slant (What’s the charm if one’s not askew?)

It’s quite green, pristine

and clear on this side

where light falls,

bathing the tree

in a glow divine.

But then, you can’t ignore

that unmistakable lean

towards the murky,

dark waters- cold and sticky

but enticing just the same.

Man-groves behave

as man-groves do.

in deep waters

p.s: Pic is lifted from one of my pals’ fb album but i’m sorry to say, i do not remember who. The photographer’d, hopefully, forgive me for using this one without his/her permission.
