the leaf that’s giving life to the tree
that leaf giving shade to a tired man
that leaf swaying to the music of the wind
that leaf making the garden greener
that leaf without which, the tree won’t remain a tree anymore
that leaf that’s the ornament of the branches
that leaf that dies one day
that leaf turns dry, falls down on the ground
that dry leaf, that children love to crush under their feet
for they love the sound of the crush..
that leaf, oh! how I admire its selflessness
that leaf, that beautiful leaf
lying on the ground silently
asking for nothing!
