What if you were a leaf..

  1. I am enthralled to see your take on every prompt. Well-done Parul. A thought-provoking post. What would I do if I were a leaf ? Just sway away to unknown destinations and enjoy my journey to wherever it takes me. 🙂

  2. I loved this post.. loved the prosaic poetry in it… the food for thought… we indeed lead so fragile lives, just like a leaf we want to be free from our roots, explore the world, run after success and salaries and yet yearn to be back home where we belong… very thought provoking and honest..

    Very thought-provoking post, Parul. I love the way you drew parallels with that leaf and the situations in life. Yes, can’t let go of today and can’t ignore tomorrow either. What a fragile life we have!

  4. As I read your post, Parul, I was thinking of all the street children and missing children I’ve been indirectly working for over the last month. They truly embody what the phrase fragile lives is all about. From all my direct interactions with them in earlier years, I know that despite their resilience and the act they put on, they’re so very fragile.
    Your analogy is fantastic.

    Take a bow dear Parul! This was simply amazing! What a beautiful analogy and so full of simple wisdom!

  7. Wow! It was quite thought provoking. I liked how you drew the connection between the sole leaf lying on the road and the situations of life. All things said, it is important to save for the rainy day without losing the essence of today.

    Will save this post to read again. And again. And again! 🙂

    Just loved this piece! And it reminded me of the picture of the broken leaf I had taken a few days… thinking how little broken we all are.

  14. Vinodini says:
