Perished the leaf
The fresh fluorescent green
That which crowned the royal twig …
Why did it die,
What happened ,asked the passer-by?

Lamented the tree
The orchid flower was her love
She adored the flower throughout her life
yesterday it accidentally got crushed
When a traveler plucked it
and crumpled …

The moment it saw the petals shriveling
The pain of the flower trembling
the little leaf couldn’t withstand
thereby died the next instant.

It was a mute love between the two
tied by bond of unusual love of dew
The drops those covered the orchid petals
slid down to the leaf
through the sepals.

As gift of love
it drank every bead
caressed the drops kissing her feet
breathing the perfume of her love,
The leaf respired every minute…

When the scent got buried in the soil of life
The green leaf too died …

    Manifestation of a decayed smell of puberty and a mute but powerful love is superb and I relished every bit of it.

    The love that only the heart can express as the flower dies can only be felt by a sensitive heart and powerfully portrayed, Soumya:)
