The Fall

#poetry #autumn

Touch an autumn leaf fallen from a tree

Scattered everywhere like a debris

Mostly rough, they are crisp and brittle

Fading away little by little

From green to red to orange hues

They lose their moisture and livelihood dues

They are destined to fall

For the tree to stand tall

Autumn leaves, we all are

Living in this world to be a star

Our life changes colors and shades

We gather love, valuables, criticisms and accolades

Not knowing how far we would go

When will life change its flow

Nescient of the irony of fate

We indulge in jealousy and hate

Lost in this world as if we would never depart

We do forget the tree has got to do its part

Autumn will surely arrive

And water will be deprived

Taking back all the essence from the leaf

And then we falter in disbelief

The tree shows us how mere is our existence

No matter how much is our resistance

We do will fall one day

All our worldly acquires would be blown away

What will be left behind, just our names

Lucky you are, if you get a little acclaim

Tree will again flourish with the onset of spring

New leaves will fill up everything

Who you were, no one would remember

Just an autumn leaf who turned into an ember

And then evanescing slowly

From the memories wholly.

Thank you so very much for your time for reading and going through my posts 😊.

riflessivo e profondo questo post, la parabola della vita Γ¨ come quella degli alberi e delle foglie che ne decretano la loro evoluzione. Spesso siamo proprio come foglie d’autunno, di una fragilitΓ  disarmante, anche la pandemia attuale ce ne da una dimostrazione…

Apltly expressed.
Remind us of the ever changing phases in life and also highlight an important lesson that the time never remains the same forever but there will always a better phase like the trees get green again after every fall of leaves.
