Photography # 20 – Betel Nut Palm Tree

We have this palm at home and when the fruits are ripe they fall down from the tree and grow just beside it. They need to be replanted because they grow a few inches from one another. They need distance to have a good fully grown tree.

Betel Nut or Areca Catechu, a native to India, Asia, Philippines, and other parts of Africa. Its benefits in consuming these nuts include, mental alertness, boost energy levels, euphoria, stamina, boost appetite and aids digestion. Studies show that there are side effects in the use of these nuts.

My Mind… I Function…

i am a part of the body
of the conscious being
that thinks and perceives
i am reflected in your memory
emotions, choices, sensations, desires
i am involve in remembering
deciding, considering, evaluating

when i see and walk near you
when i hear you speak i listen
when i touch your hand and warms
when i see your eyes meet mine
when i smell the breath from your mouth
and when you smile sweetly at me
i function quick as a wink

sadness and tears defeat me
i give up the war
i surrender to your heartaches
to your anguish and grief
even in your gloominess
i function to offer you relief

this is my mind
together with my heart
i ‘ll conquer the world
just to be with you…
i love you !
i really do !
