A FALLING LEAF
In the multitude
between the cacophonies
of the world’s moods
there free falls
from a maple tree
with waving witnesses
a solitary leaf
the only from the
many arms of this
aging forest amazon
an appendage dropping,
from its height
to an umbrageous world
a solo flight
its last and only journey
with earth’s gravity
to a mossy couch
to be transfigured
into elemental structures
in mother nature’s
architectured to be hoisted upward
through subterranean corridors
then erected in budded form
into a newly-Easter
arboreal quilted aparison
to awaken with the
luminescence of a
to flutter with the melodic
breezes of spring airs
to hear the distant
drumming of an on-marching storm
to pitter and patter
with dripping drops of rain
to once again be a leaf ––
one with the fingernails of a tree.

Wow, you have wrote a brilliant poem. The circle of life going on and on.
Wow, great writing. The 'cacophonies of the world’s moods' has got to be
my favorite phrase for the month. I have to take momentous poems a phrase
at a time or I might just get lost..(not a bad thing either, in a poem like this one)
Born again, a similar leaf, but born from the same life -blood and yet re-formed into
something once again

A very beautiful imagery has been portrayed conveying many
different themes. It can be considered as an aging process
as far as humans are concerned with the elders passing away
with new generations in line to make this world more fertile. Then
if one considers the exact word to word meaning of the poem, it
can also be conceived as it is a true phenomenon that olden leaves
fall and they become the part of soil making it more fertile like humus
and that serves as a good nourishment for the new plants. Then if
we consider it as a human race then it is again a reality that old
people they always leave behind a baseline for the young seedlings
so that they start their struggle from the point left by their elders...
A very inspirational poem with several meanings.............
