Of Old and New Leaves

Just sat under a tree

On a cool summer morning

With my thoughts for company.

Suddenly an old leaf

Falls on me.

Look up and see the dance

Of the old and the new together.

The old whispering the wisdom of the ages,

The young swaying to the beats of age.

What a wonderful coexistence

Of the old and the new.

And when the time comes,

The old leaf just drops off

Enriching the soil below

For the new.

How I wish

We learn our lessons

From mother Nature

Open ourselves to the wisdom of the old

All the while swaying the beat of age.
