Scattered leaves


A journey that was meant to reach an end-
Will always point to a newer one in its stead.
The misunderstood metaphor of now-
Will vanish away as a wisp of smoke,
Fragile and evanescent as ever.
A reality is only as real...
As the promise of a better morrow.
Nothing is what it seems to be.
A parting gesture of destiny...
May become the gratifying embrace of fulfillment.

When love ceases to exist,
In its place you may find disdain.
Somewhere in the endless void of forevermore....
Only scattered leaves will remain.

It reminds me of the song by Hariharan,
Nagme hain, shikwe hain, kisse hain, baatein hain,
baatein bhool jaati hain, yaadein, yaad aati hain


Nice lines.

Cheers,

"Nothing is what it seems to be.

But at the end you left with memories may be sweet our sour but they are special.

Nice Post.

Dissolve; the only word I can come up with to describe the poetry.

Nice imagery.

And, yes, before you ask, I'm still alive. Been tied up trying different versions of linux on my computer and that sort of thing.

And as fulfillment is to one.
It may be not the same for another.
The scattered leaves blow away in the wind.
The time passes on and so does autumn.
Spring must come; it can never to far nigh.

Lovely poem, Sammy. :)
