Sweet-Bitter Autumn

Autumn now reigns,
the heart of earth,
with joy and mirth.

Flowery fragrance in the air,
colours toddle here and there.

But, on other side of this life,
there’s much loss and strife.

Falling leaves, falling fruits,
decay and dry,
with a promise to,
rejuvenate and fly.

    We expect to see the fruits again at the same time next year. The cycle continues!

  11. Autumn is rich in colour as summer (passed) prepares itself for winter.

    Oh, how I long for spring! Stay away winter!

  15. Vandana you've captured the essence of Autumn... it has a wonderful beauty with lovely colors but as you say on the other side there is death with the faith there will be renewed hope... xox
