Saga of Autumn

Written by: Suhana Begum

Old and worn out
yet brighter than ever;
the golden time of year
has arrived oh dear.

Families of shadow
shedding there bearings;
elegantly they fall 
wishpering last words of departure.

As the calm breeze tickles 
their sprinkled laughter prickles;
formal in their crispy brown
they glide together embraced.

earth cozy under blankets
waters shimmering in their yellow;
smell of aging nature
swirls around with moisture.

skin and bones they stand
yet glamorous in their posture;
the solid tears of sky
on it's way to meet them.
