Fallen Leaves

Its end of autumn!

Fall in most winter land!

Deciduous trees –

Ash, Birch, Poplar, Walnut, Russian-Olives

Oak, Willow, Maple, Apple, Plum, Hazelnut, Peach

Shed leaves sealing twig tips in fear

For up coming cold, storm and snowy winter!

Saying goodbye to coloured family in grief

Hoping a joyous reunion during next spring!


People are usually fed up

To see sudden leaves pile ups

Over their dear lawn, garden and shrubs

Blow them away with noisy leaf blower!


I am still old fashioned extra-mundane

Enjoy raking enormous volume for days

Shed from endangered poetic Gary Oak trees

Looking at them and listening to their stories!


Rolling through the lawn

They move along driveway down hill

Singing their tales of spring, summer and fall

Most sweet reminiscences after all!

Once people start complaining about their natural season soon they become out of tune from nature’s protection! Kolki
