Reborn … (If Life Was A Leaf)

leaf-leaves-autumn-beechBy Aditi Agrawal

If only life was a leaf

I would fly to a new field

surrounded by bare trees

If only life was a leaf

With dotted holes, the doings of a moth

I would walk the edges carefully,

Slowly, steadily

If only life was a leaf

grayed and withered

ruined by the winter

I’d give it some warmth

and turn it all the more greener

If only life was a leaf

budding with zeal

I’d bury it in the earth

grow a plant, big and large

and revive what had been lost.
