The Fall

#poetry #autumn

Touch an autumn leaf fallen from a tree

Scattered everywhere like a debris

Mostly rough, they are crisp and brittle

Fading away little by little

From green to red to orange hues

They lose their moisture and livelihood dues

They are destined to fall

For the tree to stand tall

Autumn leaves, we all are

Living in this world to be a star

Our life changes colors and shades

We gather love, valuables, criticisms and accolades

Not knowing how far we would go

When will life change its flow

Nescient of the irony of fate

We indulge in jealousy and hate

Lost in this world as if we would never depart

We do forget the tree has got to do its part

Autumn will surely arrive

And water will be deprived

Taking back all the essence from the leaf

And then we falter in disbelief

The tree shows us how mere is our existence

No matter how much is our resistance

We do will fall one day

All our worldly acquires would be blown away

What will be left behind, just our names

Lucky you are, if you get a little acclaim

Tree will again flourish with the onset of spring

New leaves will fill up everything

Who you were, no one would remember

Just an autumn leaf who turned into an ember

And then evanescing slowly

From the memories wholly.

Thank you so very much for your time for reading and going through my posts ๐Ÿ˜Š.

What a beautiful poem. Indeed, Autumn leaves are reminders that one day – all of us will die, which is why we should live life to the fullest so that we won’t be afraid of the fall. If we make a real difference, our names will forever be etched on the hearts of our loved ones after we pass. Thank you so much for sharing!

Autumn leaves, how beautifully n gracefully they mature nโ€™ fall letting people smitten with the parting
away ; as the autumn your thoughts are full of emotions, a beautiful journey, a silent pain n lots of memories.

Thank you so much bhabhi for your love and support. Every being, every little thing, living or non-living give us lessons, so does the autumn, as you shared here your insights. Very much thankful to you. ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—


Samreen, it seems you and I have been in the same thought flow about life,,you are on the tree and I was on the train, but it is the same ending in variations for all of us. When I was young, I grew up in a temperate climate that had fall, and I too considered the cycle of all the leaves. Each one that fell, I felt like a small death:) Your poem is beautiful and sensitive and connected to our life cycle.. Thank you for this reminder of our fragile lives..โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™

Yes dear very much the same. Everything has to end but it’s up to us how we lived, how much love we acquired and how not at our last moment we should be not grateful for all of that. Indeed, it feels like that, everything has to end but we should learn what’s positive in that ending. Thanks so much Karima for sharing your beautiful thoughts. Means a lot. โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ

I sooo agree Samreen!!! At first I took it personally, like they might but now I’m getting that it happens and it has nothing to do with me but I still don’t like it!!! Oh you are so welcome and I appreciate yours as well! Have a great week as well! โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—

So beautiful Samreen. I didnโ€™t know you wrote poetry so well too ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’–

Ours is such an ephemeral existence Samreen. And it is all a dream. I had gone to North America last year at this very time to see the fall colours. And today it seems like a dream!

God be with you. Keep sharing your beautiful thoughts.

Love and blessings ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—

Thanks so much Ashok Uncle for your appreciation. ๐Ÿค— I started writing off poetry only since childhood, it’s now that I randomly post recipes and explainations of the haikus that I write. ๐Ÿ™‚
Indeed all is a dream or it becomes one when the moments are gone. This is life๐Ÿ˜Š
Thanks again Uncle and wish you also lots of happiness and health. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜Š

Beautiful poem about our life. How gradually it ends on this earth like Autumn leaf. During this span all different colors we experience in life like hope..sorrow..pain..contentment ect.
Creation and destruction is the cycle if life.
So enjoy each and every moment of Spring and blossoms.
Enjoyed your poem. There is always something about to feel and recognition.
