Deciduous Tree

Then something takes me back;
Do not know what...
On the way to my old homeland. 
Ah! How magical is this air with which
Even if I fill my lungs
They ask for more ….

Was the time heartless alone?
Or was it moving away 
Of a pained heart?
        
Would return if called
For an unquenched thirst

Sandstorm, you made me know
How in plastered-off mansions 
Dreams are woven in silk 
All are not over
In spider nets...

I rise from a forgotten womb 
How much I remain unknown in this town
I will yet walk through –
Let the overflowing waves
Be the part
Of the crowd of fallen leaves 
To keep the deciduous in peace.
 
Or where else do I rest - 
This turbulent sea?
Where else can it nest 
Better than  
Such Great smoky mountain forest!
