Autumn Musings

I sigh aloud
And in solitude rest
Lonely, against the naked tree
Hearing subtle music careless wind plays
Leaves dance to its melodic tunes
Scattering far away
A vagabond

Each leaf carries
Memories of lost souls
And a treasure of their heartbreaks
Picking a fallen leaf and placing it
In my diary between sheets
Precious memories of
Season gone by

Boughs are lonely
Trees tearfully part ways
With shades of orange, brown and red
Season of colors says goodbye today
Leaving my pallid soul lonely
Wishing upon autumn
To greet new hues
