inviting me to look at life with a different outlook.
Hesitatingly I took the cue,
to start my life anew.
I started walking past benches, clean and inviting
in search of the bench that I was missing.
I came across it,
covered with leaves due to unuse.
With a sigh, I dusted the bench
And when I sat on it, I realized what I missed.
The view was the most beautiful,
healing my mind and heart.
It filled my heart with joy,
rekindling the subdued feelings.
I began to wonder why I ever left this place,
a place that made me whole...
Immersed in thoughts, I felt the wind die down.
With trepidation, I lifted my eyes
only to see the view obstructed by leaves.
Now I realized why I avoided this place..
I realized this joy was momentary, a mirage.
I realized I had grown tired of waiting for the wind...
I got up from the bench once again
only to see a leaf drop on the place I sat.....
