On Way to Fall

On Way to Fall


Leaves turning pale, gradually,  

on way to brown

and …fall! 

The morning air subdued,

flows mildly,  with a slight chill,

seeming a bit pensive.

Time to bid adieu 

and drop down, lifeless!   

Having lived a full life

of purpose, contentment, 

now comes the time

to make way for

the fresh, green ones –

Yes, the Gen next,

pulsating with new life and vigour, 

waits eagerly in the wings 

to sprout up into shoots,

spreading green, with

renewed vigour and life…and hope, 

to go for another year.
