(Dedicated to ageless body and timeless mind – Deepak Sarkar, www.kolki.com)
The hands hold the rake softly like a child
Wrinkled face is glowing with youthful smile
Raking fall leaves in the yard in sunshine
Being engulfed in reminiscences of entire life!
Sun never showers less rays because of aging
Trees stand tall before sudden uprooting
A free electron never thought of upcoming bonding
Magnet behaves despite Earth’s rotation brings evening!
A leaf never thought of separation before dropping
The child inside is never too old for wisdom of living
Grand desires burn inside the flame before disappearing
Soul feels too cozy before separation from the body!
