A Leaf


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Nothingness is gripping my soul.
From the heart of my hearts I feel
something was, encircling me like
ozone to cover me from the ultra-ray
to ask me the atmosphere of my heart!
Night falls on day, day collapses
to evening but none opens their
mouth to convey thru rustle of
the air, who was here just near
me, as a brook, flowing as a lass!
No fury, no sound disturbs me
in this vale of silence!
I'm waiting in timeless eternity
for the clarion call,
to glue me as a leaf in its
prehistoric tree,
not to be detached ever! !

    Sadness around the heart makes the reader think for happiness for the poet... a glimmer of hope a leaf always knows when to let go...regards (Report) Reply

    In the vale of silence, waiting for the clarion call to be glued to the prehistoric tree like a leaf, never to be detached! Great imagery! ! (Report) Reply

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
