Shed leaves.. Only!


Print
Summers have gone by
Leaving above us this clear sky.
No more heat, no more loo
And I’ll be this happy, I had no clue!

The shedding of leaves
Can be seen from the ground
Standing head held high
Look, what a beauty I found!

Passing by this narrow lane
Envisaging the beauty around us
Life should be like this scenic view
Black and white without any fuss!

No hiding of things,
No treachery whatsoever
No speculations at any cost,
True feelings expressed in best of endeavour!

Just think for a moment
What a glory it may bring
No murkiness, no cheating
Only words of praises that people will sing!

As when things stay hidden
Devastation is the only thing they bring!
Why not just come close to the souls you love
Confess and clear things, and rise above!

For later, it will only be darkness in the future
Duskiness stored for the person of your stature
Just like the trees shoves off its leaves
Standing alone and isolated, ready to be taken away by the thieves!

And when you have it all with you,
Please do not go and become an egoist.
For its love and support of people around you
Your work and their blessings equally coexist!

Happy Reading

Cheers

  3. Love these words:

    As when things stay hidden
    Devastation is the only thing they bring!
    Why not just come close to the souls you love
    Confess and clear things, and rise above!

    So true, if only we could be as uncomplicated as nature itself!

  10. "Confess and clear things, and rise above" - if only more of us were able to do that, really and in all sincerity. So much pain can be avoided. Motivational lines, Geetika!

  11. Very thought provoking poem, Geetika. Ego doesn't allow us to confess and as a reason things aren't clear. Loved the way you've expressed.
