Last one

Let’s decide how much life I have got
Can you see me? I am the one in the middle
No! this not a riddle, I am the one, really in the middle
Some green life of my mother, Earth, left in me
Your feet are itching, to suppress me and press me
Hard on the ground, stopping my pulse abruptly
Don’t be so cruel, don’t be a fool
No fuss, but do you know
life on earth depend on us
You have this sense of invincibility
Master of the universe
Writer of this verse
Shame on you
Blame on you
Of all my mother’s woes
She is sick
Dying from, lack of fresh air, clean water
Killing forests is a non starter
What you get,
El Niño, el nina,
polar vortex, Katrina,
Keep denying, keep heading towards me
As I speak up, heave my last few breaths
You decide, upto you, yes, upto you!!

Mr Fall

Little green leaf:
Which way to fall
Trees are tall
I may get hurt
Or tear my shirt
Help me get down
Going to town

Little green leaf
Out of your mind
Are you blind
Tree will be mad
Immensely sad
If you leave like that
Don’t be so bad

Little green leaf:
What have I done
Not going to run
Just errand away
Won’t forget my way

Little green leaf
Then wait for Mr Fall
You will naturally fall
Tree be asleep
Time will stall

The leaf waited
for Fall dear fellow
Changed its colour
Red and yellow
Left the tree
Felt so free
Hit the ground
Flew to the bend
This is how
The story ends 🙂

Beginning of the end

Those rhymes I sung
When I was little
Front bells I rung
Before running away
Shouting top of my lungs
Old anthems of brave
Bees who stung
Anywhere I could touch
On those trees we hung
As days passed away
Bit by bit I am losing you all
Memories where art thou
Where else dear old fellow
Just on the tip of your tongue
