Autumn Musings by Shihabudheen
I can't resist the invitation of painful memories,
Autumn brings in holy ashes
I behold them like my lost children I am helpless I can't orphan my yesteryears
The grey hairs of forlorn tree plant in me, An enigma,hard to puzzle out; Whom should I embrace The dying Oak,or The evergreen Teak!
When pain keep raining And quench my thirsty soul; I wish, Roots buried under invisible substance of nothingness, Grow deeper into earth's heart Bloom green, Sprout life; Spread flowers and smiles Everywhere
