October Is Fall…!

How you come again with your chill?
Your presence unsettles the air
And makes me clamour for the sun again,
As the dark days slowly creep up on us.
Summer was here with its sweet fragrance
And I silently wish the sun to keep seeping into my skin
But like fleeting beauty
Time belongs to the past in seconds.

Oh, October!
With nostalgia, I embrace your chilling presence
Your fiery temper and scary roar
Make the trees sway and dance
Betraying the leaves, sending them to twirl.
I watch the leaves fall one by one
They litter the pathways, the lawns and gardens
Caressing the ground and dotting the roads
Lovely colours of brown, gold, red and deep orange
The leaves are flying and falling everywhere
Forming new carpets for us to walk on.
The rustling and whispering in the breeze
The rattling sound evoked by the wind
And the crackling sound of dead leaves
Form melodies and rhythms in my ears,
Discordant tunes of fall so it seems
Sending intense cold to my body.
Its tea time again, oh yes!
As I tuck myself under the duvet
Where warmth resides.
Winter lurk around
And sweaters, gloves, jackets and boots
Come out of hiding to breathe again,
Yet this time will pass away too
A very constant reminder
That time opens a new phase
Of change!
For the naked trees
Will grow new green leaves again.

 Peace and Love!
