Fallen Leaves

Fallen Leaves

A Poem by Swagato Saha

Fall Avenue blushes through tangerine trees; may I find her leaves forever,
Splurging shades across the wilderness, shriveled amid wintry whispers,
In million mystic trails, they fall, like fiery ambrosial cascades,
And pall pale prints, that had known the warmth, of greener yesterdays.

Sunlight oozes through the crimson veil, fickle as summer noon's nostalgia,
Into labyrinths long forgotten, that bask in bygone euphoria,
The nothern winds rise, and engulf the laughter, receding in the distance,
All along the crossway, whence they sweep, her lavender infused fragrance.

Stifled syllables swim in the mist, dangling on ever loose ends,
While raindrops swell where dreamers soared, in this paradise I've known so well,
The smoke rings merge, into the twilight, as I search for the familiar dead ends,
I wish I'd lurk there; yet I shan't anymore, for 'tis too perfect a farewell...

The first flakes settle; as the fallen leaves, will be sheathed forever in snow,
A fleeting glimpse; my coveted souvenirs, and we exchange parting vows,
Then I see the world, stretch ahead of me, a direction soon I must find,
To spend eternity, shifting frontiers, in search of the Spring left behind.

Beautiful eloquent use of words. An art itself Anand Bose from Kerala

Some writes just release a sigh within you...

Not a word wrong... every syllable placed beautifully!!! From the blush through the tangerine trees, to the first flakes, to the backward look at spring. This is poetry. :):)

I enjoyed your words and your thoughts.
"Stifled syllables swim in the mist, dangling on ever loose ends,
While raindrops swell where dreamers soared, in this paradise I've known so well,
The smoke rings merge, into the twilight, as I search for the familiar dead ends,
I wish I'd lurk there; yet I shan't anymore, for it's too perfect a farewell."
I did like the above lines. Words, soft and direct. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

Your words are reminiscent of autumn, which, with all its melancholia, reflects an underlying sense of nostalgia.

Dazzling imagery, beautiful word pictures. A few too many commas, though.

Thanks.
It was somewhat hastily typed out. Couldn't care much about punctuations.
