A Leaf(Y) Paradise - Poem by lalitha iyer
Little little whispers
from tiny tiny leaves
or in the dust heaps
Yet, touch my heart to weep.
Green and red,
yellow leaves with holy aches
when I stand near the trees
they quiver in my inner deeps
pulling my insides out.
When I watch them vibrate swift
They swirl around in every lovely graze
Slow and fast, tempestuous and cozily,
Fanned by hot mid air
They wave to me things infinite.
I am stunned
to watch the amazing varieties;
tiny, big, velvety, artistic,
Chiseled carvings in supple greens
Watch out countless are the species;
Every leaf of nature is our teacher
Cooks of nature, food and finest cosmic features
Every leaf has a history,
A story in its heart
And a legend in its silky breast.
my life’s gloom cool
I dance like a puppet girl.
the leaves are lovely, plenty, vivid
full of imaginations of my childhood views.
They flash and flash in more of blazing beauty
of life, passions, lust and emotions, volatile.
with nests of birds
reminds of those Spring days
when leaves used to cuddle the branches
Coconut leaves like guitar strings
Banana leaf like Noah’s Arc
pregnant with tradition’s tale and their aroma
The boat shaped beauty
such huge womb, like a mother’s
with a homely flavor and hugging air
lovely banyan hearts
reflecting heavenly mansions of throbs
some leaves shiver with trembles within me
they shake in the air with such gentle rapidity
that I feel the charge of nature within my spine
every leaf zooms into my mind’s panorama
and every single wing it spreads
with snuggling furs
I relish, it is an eternal pleasure.
