Round N Round Leaves
This happened very long long ago.
At that time leaves of all the plants used to be the same.
All of them were round ‘n’ round.
Some trees had small round leaves.
While some trees had big round leaves.
Even the climbers were fat round.
The grass under the trees used to be small round.
And the grass in fields was big-big round..
Some trees were small.
Some trees were chubby.
Some trees were tall.
Some trees were short.
Some trees were erect.
Some trees were zigzag.
Some trees were wavy.
Some trees were steady.
The trees thought
''Our sizes and shapes are different.. ..
But our leaves have the same shape!
Why is that?
The leaves should have different shapes and sizes like us.
Leaves on every tree should be different.''
The next day…
Cows arrived. Pushing each other they started eating the big round grass.
Sheep came. Climbing with two legs on the trees anxiously ate the leaves nearby.
Giraffe came and ate the soft new leaves of the trees.
Elephants came and started ripping out the grass and leaves from the trees.
Monkeys started screeching, jumping eating the leaves.
A flock of birds came. They started plucking leaves and grass to build their nests.
A lot of insects came and started eating as many leaves as the wanted.
Some of them ate half of the leaves.. And then some ate a little of grass.
Some cut the leaves by beaks some snatched away the leaves.
Some ate half of the leaves while some just ripped the leaves.
But some of the leaves still remained untouched.
And that is why…
Some leaves were straight, while some were longer.
Some leaves were prickly, while some were wide spread.
Some leaves were cut, while some were designed.
Some leaves were strange and stranger.
Some leaves were erect, while some were hanging.
Some leaves remained the same, while some got ripped.
Some leaves still remained round ‘n’ round.
Since then, shapes of all the leaves started varying.
Trees were happy and..
The leaves started waving.
