Under the Shadow of the Tree...

Sitting under the shadow of a tree
waiting am I,
for the footsteps and
crackling sound of the dry leaves.

It has been long
since she left for the
eternal journey to her ethereal home.

Route of her journey
must have been the same.
The branches and leaves
of the trees are
Oozing with the fragrance of her body.

The leaves were desperate then
The leaves are desperate today
to be touched by her feet and crackle!

But it is said
that footsteps of souls
do not create sounds!
