Falling Leaves

By Zubair Hussain

Crisp autumn sighs in grief

ashen sky blankets emotions,

Barren earth struggles to confront

life fades by the hour,

Cold wind darts across

melancholic maple and oak,

bent trees mull over lost foliage.

Amid the melee;

urban dwellers scurry in routine,

heartless and unforgiving;

consumed by the trivial,

Drift away like falling leaves…

New Dawn

By Zubair Hussain

New dawn brings forth-

Palette of sombre shades,

Fleeting days;people scurrying,

Cloaked scythe sweeps across,

Weepin’ wreathed memorials.

Healing mother; pained mankind

Wound clock loses pace,

To ponder or not,

a war silently fought…
