Evening walk: In the harsh nothingness, they grow

Evening walk: In the harsh nothingness, they grow

How does this leafy plant grow- on top of a ceiling sheet, no soil, only rain water and air!

As I set out to walk in the evenings,

I notice a particular leafy plant.

And I was so amazed to find

a few of these plants growing

on top on zinc ceiling sheets- no soil at all!

That would mean no nutrient?

Just rain water and air?

Then it reminds me

of the poor kids out there

with no parents, no guardian

to help them by.

Yet, they grow…

some did better

than those in the warm comforts of home!

This leafy plant found a snuggly warm comforting place between the two tree trunks- maybe with access to soil!
