The Autumn


The then blossoming buds and lush greens,
Now the falling leaves of autumn.
The blooming clusters now withered and wasted.
Twilight, again!
The spring is dawn,
Only to those who brave the fall.

  1. NIce Ruby. Three different interpretations so far. Yours is nice and light.

    Side note: Fall is the only season I don't have to brave - it's my favorite.

    1. Thank you Kenya. I am yet to read the other entries but I am sure yours would be far better than this.
      Fall and winters together are my favorites.
