Welcome Autumn




The winter is knocking, the leaves have fallen
  The air is fragrant with night blooming cestrum’s pollen
A nip in the morning air heralds another winter
   The sun sets early as the days  shorten n splinter
Festivals abound and the spirits are high
  The market places festooned, poor men sigh!
Getting up in the morn will soon be a challenge nigh
     Bar be cue’s and grills will be a foodie’s delight
The season we cherish after messy monsoon days
        A huge relief after scorching  hot sunny  rays!

  34. Oh wow. Such a lovely poem. I like everything that the season has to offer. Its neither too hot nor too cold, but we always feel fresh with so much of energy. The festive mood sets in and yeah, you were so right about the challenge of waking up in the morning and Foodie's delight, definitely :-) It's the kind of season where you would want to hand out with friends in open places, like the beach!

    I could so relate to it. Lovely Poem sir :-)
