Dark was the forest, gloomy were its leaves
Bleak was the space, solitude in the air
No light, no plight, no reflection, no sight
Afar, I heard the wail and cries,
A frail shadow, I saw
sitting behind the farthest tree
Shrouded in a veil so grimm,
the old woman greaved.
She sulked in silence
holding a red scarf
My mind, filled with dilemma
“Should I go ahead?,
Must I help?”-
A pool of questions in my head,
Oh… I felt so drowned.
I braved my fear
but my steps – dwarfed.
As I moved ahead with caution,
I got a strange sensation
The cries had stopped,
the shadow disappeared.
The scarf was still there;
no human but a string of pearls
lie there, half – scattered.
