This Fall

This Fall

The fall adds wings to my words
The soft swish of breeze carries them away
Floating down merrily, they smile at me
And dance around with glee.

The ‘J’ of joy, the ‘M’ of melancholy
The ‘S’ of solitude, the ‘T’ of twilight
The ‘H’ of hope, the ‘C’ of calmness
All merge into each other

Enhancing the beauty of brilliant decay
Colors of fall highlight each ray
Of sun to inspire thoughts of twilight
Of forbearance, of change, of new days

At night the frightening wind
Brings sweeping somber thoughts
Of chilly gusts, of lonely nights
A yearning yells at those sights…

To get away, to stay adrift, to disengage
All those memories glide softly back
Into those enclosed caskets
Never shall I excavate.

This fall I am burying them deeper
This fall is more buoyant, more blissful
The resilience rests on my brow
The happiness lives with me now

In my thoughts, in my loving home
In all seasons, even in this fall
It brings sweet memories of moments dear
My words fly now with the same cheer.

  1. Thank you for sharing your lovely poem Balroop and welcoming fall in. It is indeed a time of the year where we share many family activities, memorable get-togethers, holidays, haunted memories and more. Your poem is able to click a photo of fall in all it’s glory and brilliance.

    1. Thanks Vishnu, fall brings along festivities and yes! memories too, some which haunt us for a long time but like the flying leaves, we let them go away into the oblivion, welcoming love and the glory of seasons, which are natural teachers.
      love your insight!

  2. Hi Balroop,

    Lovely words, and they take me to a whole new world altogether 🙂

    You know…this season – fall and even autumn are the best times of the year and I could just get lost in such a weather. So, reading these lines were pure bliss for me.

    Thanks for sharing, and wishing you a very happy weekend and a belated Diwali 🙂
