Poem 173 - Autumn

As yellow leaves, fall down in the lake, saying their good-bye's
Sun starts shining brightly, to add more yellow to the lake
I sit there on a rock looking at the reflection, the sun looks like a plate
Trying to catch the leaves, and waiting for the trees, to wake

No noise, no rustles, of the leaves, they are crunched by the people who walk by
Still more leaves fall into the lake, leaving the branches of trees alone
As I look into the lake I see, so many leaves wet, and sad
As the trees wait for winter, the last few leaves fall down on their own
-Gaurang Rao


  1. I wonder whether the leaves float long enough for the fairies to use them as boats? *smiles*
    Thank you for playing In Tandem.

  2. This has a good ending, Gaurang - very good effort by you. It captures the emotions of autumn well. Keep it up!

  3. lovely lines...nicely crafted words!

  4. I agree with Kalyan, nice love lines...
