It’s a sign autumn is here,
When the rain is nowhere near,
And milder turns the weather,
With rolling clouds drifting like feather.

It is a sign of autumn’s advent,
When the sun has no heat to vent,
And farmers bask in its retreading shine,
To the evening’s bonfire of wine and dine.

Autumn is here when the breeze is cold,
And the leaves break from the boughs fold,
Under tree’s canopy they all gather,
And end up in farmlands all asunder.

Autumn is the happy season,
Smiles on the faces its reason,
It’s time to reap what was sown and cared,
And for months with vigilant eyes which were reared.

Autumn is the season farmlands transform into golden hue,
And the grain laden stalks sway lazily as harvest is due,
Sooner the farmers come with jubilation, sickle in their hands,
To take home merrily those golden grains abound.

Autumn is here when the ripe fruits adorn the trees,
Whose boughs bend low unmoved by blowing breeze,
Then people start picking, basket on their backs,
And to the market goes yellow mellow fruits in stacks.

Autumn is a season of festivities never ceasing,
Air in the valleys filled with melody so rousing,
Of songs and dances that keep on reverberating
An offering to god sends people celebrating.

Autumn is here when birds sing ad infinitum,
Rejoicing at the season of bounty’s continuum,
That ensures their young ones will not go hungry,
For the season of plenty is finally here in the country.

Dear esteemed reading friends, I am really sorry for not being able to update my blog post for the last couple of days. I am sure not many would have noticed it but, for those who take time to visit my blog, I have to inform here that, I was unusually busy and I could not update my blog with my crap of writing. I hope, all of you must have had some wonderful days with the blessings of the Triple Gem.

Meanwhile, take care and be happy always. It is always so much better to be happy with what you have (even if you don’t have anything- like me) than, being miserable with what we don’t have!

Happy Reading!!!
