A Leaf

Small shoots of green

Eager to see the world

The leaf peeped at the sky

A brilliant blue ablaze.

Day by day it stretched

Pleased to be the only one

The only one who was so green

The only one to see the sky

And one fine morning

The leaf unrolled

And found itself

Among its clones

Its fancy crushed

It wasn’t the greenest

It wasn’t the highest

And the sky so dear

Wasn’t its own.

-Yogya
