The Heartless Tree

By: Anurag Kumar Singh

Leaf nourishes the plant in the sunlight to augment into  the tree,

There are endless leaves on the tree.

A Time comes when the tree shed its leaves,

And after sometime  new leaves grows.


Meanwhile the fallen leaves,

Some of them are  sweeped away, crushed,

 and some are blown away in the air.

Some remains under the feet of  the tree and turns  brittle and red  ,

in a hope to re-join the tree.


the heartless tree will never understand the sacrifices made by the leaves.

It remains rigid, strong and vibrant while the leaves become dull and dies.
