Autumn leaves

every leaf….speaks bliss to me….Emily Bronte

Fall leaves..are sheer visual poetry…a soul satisfying experience…the reds….the yellows…oranges…pinks..& greens…

And..they fall making way for new leaves..

And they fall and fall…everywhere…all over…

On a cold October evening…to walk on a path…full of crisp autumn leaves…is something I could do every year

Hidden..under those leaves …a path ..which is joyous….

And the crisp sound …as you walk on them …is something unmatchable…

And when the cold wind blows…they dance…& how! A sight to behold…

Had the opportunity to see the changing colours…of leaves….from green to yellow…orange to red..

It is mesmerising to watch them grow old…& fall one after other…and they go out in all colours…

Autumn…teaches you how to let it all go…

It reminds us….to live..& to live well…live every moment…& to go when time is right…

Way of life…circle of life…gist of life..whatever one wants to call.

I had a chance to watch them..in all glory…from the time I reached Calgary to the time I left..& in between few weeks in America.

An experience..which was in my bucket list ..simply because..we don’t have such autumn foliage in India …ours is very subtle…here & there…but over there …it is all over…

Being a colours person…I will cherish those oranges….pinks…reds…yellow..forever

As I close this post…

I would like to quote…Dodinsky..

I hope I can be the autumn leaf…

Who looked at the sky & lived…

And…

When it was time….to leave…

Gracefully.,,,

It knew….

Life was a gift….Dodinsky

So….enjoy that gift called life…

Lies & hatred…keep away…

Try being nice…it does help…

Just LIVE….bright & happy…

And…

Just LEAVE…when it is time….
