Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

As the final curtain drops…

Seasonal transition follows nature’s rhythm.

Once full of supple verdurousness  

today, I mirror a dull ochre expression.

Diluted veins sap my strength,

 I am blown away by the gust of wind,

my withered soul drifts away from home.

I twirl to the rhythmic breeze, explore faraway places,

at times crushed beneath the hurried feet.

I hold no grudges.

Graceful surrender and acceptance, fills me with peace.

Nature’s lullabies cajole me to deep slumber

 into mother earth’s welcoming bosom..

    mirror a dull ochre expression.

    my withered soul drifts away from home.

    These such beautiful description of the changing season. There is so much to relate in the experience of the fall leaves, I have always contemplated relations and such. Your poem gives a very peaceful feeling and perspective of sweet surrender.

    Wonderfully penned Radhika. You beautifully intertwined human expressions into nature’s transition and ended the poem gracefully with surrender and acceptance. As always brilliant Radhika.
