Golden leaf

Golden leaf
A leaf depart from a tree
alike a vessel
it floated on the wind
before landing on my terrace

The wind blow it to the corner
recklessly, against the wall
the desperate leaf
sought my attention voluntarily

At a foot tough distance
laying like a reckless zero
the leaf reveals in yellowish
holding a scar on its surface.

The soft fragile leaf
caress while grabble in fingers
and wholly gratify
holding a whole leaf

I wish for this peepal leaf
shaped in heart-in
and cause piping
to fold in as a pipe to blow.

The light delicate leaf
inspires me to bring home
and thus I kept somewhere
to forget to remember today,
the leaf turned frailly more

It was a rough experience
touching the leaf
and due to rigid and vein
the leaf expose to golden hue.

Read that in under a minute, such was the flow.

The following stanzas stood out for me especially original expressions like "reckless zero" and "holding a scar on its surface!" :)

Keep it up Jeevan - as I always say, your poetry is so full of nature's simple joys and therefore of "LIFE"!!!
