A Leaf

Poem By Neela Nath Das

Nothingness is gripping my soul.
From the heart of my hearts I feel
something was, encircling me like
ozone to cover me from the ultra-ray
to ask me the atmosphere of my heart!
Night falls on day, day collapses
to evening but none opens their
mouth to convey thru rustle of
the air, who was here just near
me, as a brook, flowing as a lass!
No fury, no sound disturbs me
in this vale of silence!
I'm waiting in timeless eternity
for the clarion call,
to glue me as a leaf in its
prehistoric tree,
not to be detached ever! !

Sadness around the heart makes the reader think for happiness for the poet... a glimmer of hope a leaf always knows when to let go...regards
In the vale of silence, waiting for the clarion call to be glued to the prehistoric tree like a leaf, never to be detached! Great imagery! !

A River Of The Will

A river of the will,
Plays in my mind.
I call her to come out,
But she stays behind.

Walk With Me A While

Walk with me for a while,
Throw your glum, and please, smile-
Our heaven is not very near.....
See there a grove of pine,

Stupid I

My stupid I,
do not know,
the sight of the
falling snow.

Mother

Her eyes are blank,
Clothes torn, ragged & patched
Beauty has taken renunciation long past;
She has no rank,

100s Of Years

Trees can live for hundreds of years,
They well know to live together!
They tuft to earth, as child's to mom,
Light, water, and air they do share!

My Dream, My Pet

It lies and sleeps with me
and wakes me up, in the morning.
It sweeps my gloomy sky and
mops the soot of mind's every corner.
