While I was standing near My Autumn tree The Sun was fading, with all its grandeur and beauty, Somewhere far, very far away amid the Poplar trees. I was in a state of enchanted stillness, Beholding the gold which was showering on me, With every gush of wind coming from the east. The earth was wrapped in a lovely darkness, Slowly the Sun rays slipped away from the hands of the evening, but It embraced the night in her arms perhaps to console its forlorn heart. I was glued with the fragrance of Autumn, while the Sun was still fading slowly, Leaving only a yellow and radish glow in the sky. The golden leaves of Poplar were still falling on me, Coming to me while flying from the Poplar tree. Suddenly the birds said adieu to me, reminding me once again the passing of time, While I was standing near my Autumn tree. Ravindra Kanpur India 4th Sept. 2011
Poem submitted in honor of Brian Strand's contest SEPTEMBER-YOUR CHOICE

    It would be an honor and a great pleasure too for me, my friend. I will write a Poem on Nature; if possible I will support it with a Photo & would send it to you. You then sketch your wonderful words to make it a unique association and finally we publish the Poem and the Blog with that unique Photo. Hope this new great idea of making something different would be liked more by others….Ravindra

    Dear Ravindra, the time you spent beneath this trea seems like the passage of a lifetime right up till the moment when finally, the birds say farewell. This is more than a picture of one day, but a portrait of a lifetime. Bless you for sharing it with us. Love you, Carolyn
