Fallen Leaves


As I walk past,
Those dried leaves were lying all over the place
They were trying to convey something
Some are dead and others were dying
As I hold them to talk to,
they smiled at me even at the time of their death
I didn't know what to make of it
I smiled at them and moved on
Then I wondered,
if they can smile even at the time of their death,
why can't we when we have so much to live for.


Keep Smiling,
Prashanth.

    Indeed we have all the reasons to smile and still we overshadow them with our frowns :)

  4. A Leaf's life is not as complicated as ours, I guess.. Unlike us, they have a clear mandate. We make life so complicated that we ourselves don't know if we should smile over happiness or feel sad over issues..

    Nice post dost! :)

    1. I feel for us, nature is the best teacher. It's just that we make our lives complicated. Even among us, we see some who live a simple uncomplicated life. After all its a choice which we make that decides how we gonna live our lives....:)
