A Lonely Fallen Leaf

One fine morning
In the season of fall
The leaf pick up made its early round
And the trash was just picked
Sun was shining
The sky was blue
And the wind blew in occasional spurts…
The empty trash bin lay on its side
Rocking and rocking with every blow of the wind.

A lonely dry leaf flew by and landed on the ground
Inching forward and backward as the wind blew,
And the empty trash bin kept on rocking.

The world seemed to be in a dynamic equilibrium
With motion of all its elements synchronized.

I watched with curiosity
If the lonely leaf would be trapped in the bin
And make its way to the landfill mound!

With a final gust of wind
The leaf flew past the bin and away
The wind stopped and the bin lay still
And the leaf, I hope, will find a safe place and degrade
And contribute its share to the ecological parade.

    A usual episode from nature`s routine happenings has been well rendered here inviting the mind to ponder over the mandatory impact of cause and effect in human life. The interwoven aspects of observation and recapitulation have effectively been driven home in this poem. Kudos to you Tirupathi Chandrupatla.

    Even a lonely fallen leaf has it's place in the ecology of
    nature. We too can be just like that lonely leaf. We also
    play an important part in the Human race however small
    it may seem we can make an impact. A wonderful write.
