Treasure Island

Change


Rustling leaves
Crushed underneath
It kindled a thought
Made me ponder

A part of a blooming tree
Today they lie anonymously
With a faint identity
Where in they belong?

Traveled miles
Through the fury
Of the potent gale
Through the chilliness
Of the winter frost
Through the clout
Of the monsoon rain

Today as they lie ruined
An inexplicable tranquility
An unfathomable delight
For the accomplishment
They feel
Disregarding the pain

Accepting change
Is the way of life

Indeed
Bliss is temporary
Grief is volatile
Only change is enduring

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
