Lower Leaf Is Falling - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

While lower leaf is falling down
Upper leaf is giggling at the rate.
Due to pale yellow colour it happens
Aging has left marks on lower leaf.

Branches tie them up but no help
We do not know when lower falls
Upper leaf is newly grown sure
Now maturity is far to keep in lap.

Natural processes can never bend
We have to see what happens here
Time is sure powerful as this is true
Every leaf who comes down has to fall.

Who can hold this in right age? tell,
We have to maintain the flow eagerly
There is no alternative we feel sure
Lower leaf is falling and upper has to.
