An autumn leaf
you slowly withered
Carried on the chariot
of the cruel winds,
the pigment of life
Stretched on the pyre
of sandalwood clouds,
you looked peaceful!
Wish could keep a
you a leaf, in a glass jar,
a souvenir forever.
With my hands clasped
in yours, we will
laugh together at
the frivolities of
RIP my beautiful

A sad and poignant but wonderfully written poem.
Thanks Dracula, write it for someone who departed, it’s been some time though. I guess it’s the COVID-19 which is not letting me shed the sadness. Going to gym now in a hope exercise might help 🙂
Sandalwood clouds was epic.
“Wish could keep a/you a leaf, in a glass jar,/a souvenir forever” was the highlight. At the high of your poem, you introduced these words. Humbling everything. Perfect landing Professor.
Thanks a lot for your insight, I’m glad that you liked it, truly appreciate it. Regards.
You put some new imagination in every work. That makes it intersting. Are you the one who lives in past at times ? Just out of curiosity m
No I don’t dwell in the past but I do have a very live imagination. Honestly I never thought I’m a good poet really, I’m skeptical.
Haha. At least you are in touch with language due to teaching profession . Am miles away. But its ok. I mean just let out what you have to offer. No one is judging you personally and if someone is, hardly matters.
Yeah I do pen what I feel, not restricting myself from any topic as such.
Thats the essence. I also journal daily before going to bed. Write anything. Day proceedings, feelings., etc. It helps lighten up and also introspect
That’s true, I do write a lot also lead a very active life with family, my students my fitness instructor.. everyone helps a bit.
