Forces of Nature


With ceaseless zeal,
The gusty winds rudely rustle the leaves awake
With ungentle shakes,
It renders the solitary tree shivering in the cold
And as a mother clings on to her child,
Mother tree strives to hold onto her daughter
Unwilling to lose
even one of that which she had borne
Denying the forces of nature
She hangs on to every one of them
But alas, one had fallen too far from her reach
Loosed after its struggle with the cruel winds
The withered leaf finally lets go
And swirls fatally to the ground
In a heartbeat, the wind screams victory
In a heartbeat, the tree screams misery
And as she sees her love touch the ground
She closes her eyes and loses heart
And soon her love's brethren rains down
Burying her first fallen forever more
