Wild Poetry: Autumn (By Sarika)

Beneath the wistful skies, I behold…
the sight of auburn autumn, on my threshold…
Sweeping strokes of the whistling winds, brushing my cheeks….
Under fading warmth of the sun and air, so bleak…
Once brimming with youth, the sunflowers bold….
Now stooping down, growing old….
Once swooning in verdant luscious foliage….
the lovelorn trees now, standing bare in daze….
Lifeless russet leaves swirling in melancholy dance…
Under the beguiling autumn’s trance…
Withered leaves falling one by one to the ground….
Weaving the tapestry of organic brown….
To the cadence of wilted leaves falling in reprise….
I relinquish, let go and swirl like a broken leaf in the autumn of my life…

  1. A fine description of a beautiful Autumn which I yearn for given that the cold breath of Winter has been swirling round my feet and the dandruff from his unkempt hair has been falling already in places in the Wilds of Wales.

        I remember you had suggested collaborating and even commented your email id but I had misplaced it somewhere. If you’re still considering the offer, I would love to collab!
        And thanks. I’m really glad to be back.
