Radhey Shiam, IN






fallen dry leaves
touch my bare feet
sound so sweet



dewed meadow
a cow moves on
its footprints follow



dry leaves fall
on the ground
without notice



autumn morning
so many pearls
on the spider’s web



the reeds wear
white capes
to greet the autumn



a leafless tree
a peacock
enlivens the tree



dead fallen leave
danced with the wind
on the ground



dry leaves in flame
green leaves shiver
distasteful touch



an aged lady watches
yellow leaves shiver
awaiting fall



snowy peaks
I do breathe in
the divine sweetness
