Life in Autumn
by Dr. Manasi Dutt
Bookmark and Share
  My life is like
Nature in autumn
When leaves fall away
Burning bushes burn.
Some of my dreams and desires
Still burn with flames that churn.
Others burn away in ashes,
Not waiting for their turn.

I look at the maple in front yard
Part of leaves blown away,
Part still hang loose
Color changing from green to crimson, to yellow
Waiting for the trumpet of autumn to bellow
'Make up your mind'
I scream at the tree
Set all your leaves free
It is after all autumn
You are a maple
Not a burning bush to burn.

The same order I give to my mind
It is autumn of life
So, don't be blind
Let go of crimson leaves,
Let go of life's dreams
Settle down in autumn, my mind,
Don't be a fool and don't be blind.
