Leaf’s Odyssey “Outside My Window”

Outside my window
A leaf’s odyssey is about to begin
When I sit and see Outside My Window…
Nature is alive
The view is fresh
it’s the sign for monsoons to arrive
The barren trees will now bear leaves

The journey will soon begin

It’s the season of rain
It’s the time for the new campaign
The new tiny leaves on the tree, which have grown like carefree
The fresh greens highlighted by the sun and that’s my leaf among everyone.


When I sit and see Outside My Window…
I look out on hills to Explore
The smell of earth so fresh is Petrichor.
I enjoy the smell of mud,
along with My hands-on the hot coffee mug.

Outside my window


When I sit and see Outside My Window…
Refreshing rains, make the hot mud so awaked,
Like the moments have been baked.
The message of clouds,
That moves across the grounds.

When I sit and see Outside My Window…
I get such blissful views with nature’s sound
I’m blessed to have rainbows around


Outside my window

When I sit and see Outside My Window…
Parrots squawk and say hello
pretty squirrels chatter like a talk show
If I peep a little more
on the other side of the house
Peacock flies over the outhouse

Droplets on leaves, Designs they leave.
When I sit and see Outside My Window…
Monsoon knocks on the door,
With lots of fresh cheer.


When I sit and see Outside My Window…
fresh, raw, unripe, immature leaves
which started its journey from a tree
its admired for its beauty and freshness
it looks as if nature has re-dress

Rain, Wet, Window, Glass Yellow, Flower, Nature

When I sit and see Outside My Window…
Torrents of rain sweep the sidewalks clean.
A ray light raining morning in August
Monsoon magic makes it happen on the Earth’s crust.


Book, Read, Tee, Literature, Window Sill, HouseplantWhen I sit and see
I see the Shower that cleanses the Earth
Meadows of land which gets there worth.

I love beauty and thank nature.
My leaf is fresh and clear
It’s filled with life and unlimited cheer
It has hope and a new beginning
When I sit and see Outside My Window…
