An Encounter..

I never knew closest I would get to know myself was to be alone
But then I thought I wouldn’t mind a company to walk along
As I entered the dense woods, I was greeted by wet muddy smell
And trees waving at me with a greeting “Welcome my dear friend”
As I walk along a rugged path clicking pictures of beauty around me
Seldom stopping to write a note on feelings inside of me
With occasional drizzle, making greenery more refreshing
As water from heaven cleanse every corner of the woodland
As I see a dew drop gently dripping from one leaf to another
Seems like a piece of diamond being shared by two beautiful ladies
Mesmerized by rhythm of activities around me, a voice touch my ears
And I couldn’t help but to change my path and move towards it
As I moved closer to this voice, strangely it seemed the most soothing melody
I see an old lady sitting on a woodblock, collecting dry leaves as she sings along
She looked at me with a smile and continued with her chores
As I walked towards her it felt like someone I had always known
Or someone who was always around me but unnoticed
Wrinkles on her face and glowing eyes was just an add on to her beautiful voice
As I spoke to her, we mingled as if we had a past connection
Sharing an occasional laugh, she just blended with surroundings
And then
I asked her, what she would do with all those dry leaves
She said once these were part of a thriving tree
And now they are abundant and needed a motherly love
It took a moment for me to just rephrase what she had said
But then I thought let me take a photo with her as a wonderful remembrance
Returning back, there was something that changed within me
Or a cord inside of me which had unraveled itself making me peaceful
Still trying to figure out meaning of her response
As I set in my room, going through the photos
I came across one which stunned me
It was just me, the nature, the woodblock and dried leaves
Suddenly I found myself wondering about old lady
Trying to go through flashes of what had happened
And as I closed my eyes I could just see her smiling face
Wondering about her disappearance
As I am about to write, I found a dry leaf in between my note
And all the blocks inside of me started to fall apart
Making a clear sense, that I was always protected by her
There was someone always watching over me and loving me
She was not part of the nature, she was the nature
She was Mother Nature
