The Fallen Leaf

Millenniums have I traversed through mists and thunder Hovering above volcanoes, stretching through sea-caves My passionate trips surfaced along the meander Of mountain ridges, swaying like a marooned slave My autumnal greenness suffered a parch In the days of searing summer pretty much During winter the swirling wind laid me astray Summer again to turn me green from grey Suffering from others’ pains I writhed The days of intense agony were built The confounding rays of sun made me swoon Was I born again? Was it nature’s boon? Today I look up at the distant Sun Covertly content; I have made my run

Thanks Nupur for visiting me. it's absolutely heartening to have a positive critique from the members of PS. it's superfluous to say that one's pen just carries on building up a poem, the interpretation part rests upon the readers. anyway, perhaps i used the phrase to enact the drudgery of mankind during life's journey. the sway is the embodiment of the psychological strife that results out of it. Thanks again... Prasenjit

Very nice imagery! And the rhyme scheme is good too. A well-written piece overall. Just one point, though. I didn't understand the phrase 'swaying like a marooned slave'. Why this comparison? Why would a marooned slave 'sway'? I didn't get that. Apart from that, I really enjoyed your imagery a lot!
