Like the Earth

Lying amongst paper-thin leaves

in resignation he heaves

a sigh  longed-for yon all time –

the lowly rests, melts the rime




Written for Amreen’s PTWWW ‘Be Inspired’ Weekly Writing challenge #19 which was to write a Tanaga (a type of Filipino poem, consisting of four lines with seven syllables each with the same rhyme at the end of each line).
