Autumn Leaves


	We walked
	through the autumn leaves
	of transition times
	God's Word observing
	who remained silent
	tracelessly mute

	Tracelessly too we walked
	not even rustling of foliage
	we were like feathers
	and didn't amount to weights
	of wilting transition times

	They have been times
	where you talked about foliage
	because of the beauty
	the beauty
	the press speaker said:
	silence is better
	because of the beauty
	the beauty
	of the golden leaves

	The trees grew mutely
	and without roots
	like condemning
	we too were rootless
	and far off from words

	We walked
	through the autumn leaves
	of transition times
	which painfully
	disintegrated in time
