The Fallen Leaf

The Fallen Leaf short poem

The storm has come.
Look there! It’s on the prowl.
It will try to waste me;
Transferring me from one place to another;
Terminating all thoughts of hope, in my soul.
The wrinkles, on my face, did smother.

People tread on me,just indignantly.
That wretched tree has shed me, long long back.
I weep at the corner silently;
While again comes the storm, snatching the only corner.
I am still living, still breathing, amongst this dead shack.
I aspire for that self-the one which was my former.

That magnanimous giant is rejuvenated;
The freshness is dripping like the morning dew;
It is as if it had just mated.
Only one work remains-All around I hover.
Because to me, like a traitor, it slew.
Look at the grace dominant all over!

Beware, yet, you ungrateful tree!
Like a phoenix I will rise once again.
I will again be on a graceful spree.
The storm itself will raise me high,
High above all, high over you.
And reach the infinite limits of the sky,
Surpassing the Mighty You!

Is it just The Fallen Leaf that your verse talks about or is it about the choices we can make in life about how we view our plight…Enigmatic writing @mekhala-chattopadhyay!

Leaves on the trees turning from yellow to brown With a stiff wind soon on the ground Rustling, rustling A pile of leaves so neatly collected Beckoning me so they’re not neglected Rustling, rustling I jump I jump so gleefully
