Floating Aloof...



I am like a leaf
Floating aloof...
Going where the breeze takes me.

I am shed from the tree,
Heaven up above!
Picked up by the breeze of life
Sometimes I fly high
On wings of happiness
Sometimes I crash
With the burdrn of pain

I am like a leaf
Lying on the ground
When there is no breeze to carry me

I am stamped upon
Crushed and humiliated
Worn out like a dried leaf
Waiting for the breeze to carry me again

Take me with it
Let me float and settle
As I reach my final abode

Neers said...

i read this on Arti's blog itself... and yes i agree... this is quite good! Kuan! and the picture with it is quite a sight, lonely, vulnerable... and yet quite strong!!

starry nights said...

Beautiful and meaningful words.first I wanted to be that leaf to just fly away in the breeze, but as I read on I did not want to be the leaf being trampled on. Isn't life like that sometimes.we want only the joy and not the pain.

Meg said...

That seemed sad and yet quite beautifully written...the visuals it created in my head were picture perfect....

Hi Kuan I cannot tell you the encouragement that I found in reading the comments that where posted as a result of my poem at your blog spot, It was very hard for me to post the poems because it really is exposing a part of my heart, I write poems constantly and I now think I will post a few more on my blog for sure, after all we miss out on a large part of life if we don’t take risks. Also Arti D. Honrao I really like the descriptions in your poem it leaves much to the imagination and a great picture too! And Kuan thank you very much for the comments at my blog spot!

Kuan Gung said...
