Like an autumn’s last leaf
lingering on a soul-less tree
unable to hold its weight,
to fly with a gush of wind
with her face in tear,
she waits for her beloved…
It was a mistake of her,
done even by leaves before.
Falling in love with a wind,
that never had home of its own.
There’s no place, no destiny,
yet she awaits a future uncertain.
Far from the forest
in the realm of mountains,
sudden vortex affects the wind,
for change of direction to take place.
Like a storm it made a rush,
for someone counting the days.
Whispers the leaf back to tree
in ritual of parting good byes…
breaking vow of her silence finally.
Names the one she awaits for,
a destiny beyond the ties.
Overhearing the leaf, wind complies.
With a swift blow, leaf left its stage,
wind took her in arms like a falling page,
Abode of peace with little shade
where wind met its contender’s resting place.
Crowded, mingling in dust and shine
home of leaves that won the race.
Dancing with wind, leaf did sing a song,
“my moments with wind, has life full blown”.
