Once again….

Once again…

Orange hued leaves gleam under the autumn sun,

All the trees proudly display their crowned canopy,

A resplendent feast to the onlookers.

And days  pass…

Winter creeps in,

The weather turns chilly,

the leaves wither,

One by one,

Slowly, slowly,

They turn brown and brittle,

And get carried away by the passing wind.

With a deathly stare the trees look bare.

Alas! The rendezvous is ephemeral.

.

Days pass….

.

And with the onset of spring ,

Slowly,slowly,

One by one,

the leaves appear,

The trees are once again overladen

and exuberant with lush flowers.

The joyful circle of life continues,

Once again…..

**************
