Like the air, invisible, untouchable but paramount to life.
An emotion, a void filled, completeness, paramount to happiness.
A feeling, a whisper, a simple touch, paramount to survival.
A fantasy, an imagination, a dream, paramount to ambition.
Family, friends, a society, paramount to continuation.
Celebrations, festivals, customs, paramount to joy.
Like a soul within a body, otherwise just muscles, bones, blood and nerves.
Love is paramount to existence.
Soaking up the Sun before hibernation.
A sleep, as deep as death, necessary to survive Winters.
Sleep granting life, sleep preparing for future generations.
Leaves, lime green and lemon yellow, waiting patiently for the temperature to drop.
This year September had been unusually warm, delaying the magic show of nature.
But soon the show begins, nature adorns its most vibrant attire.
Appearance of leaves changing from sparkling sunshine yellows to bright oranges.
The royal blood red deepening to sophisticated maroons. Finally resting at rusts and browns before they kiss the Earth.
Falling gently to the ground, one leaf over another, one at a time, slowly, meticulously. Leaving the tree bare.
Rising to form heaps of leaves’ mountains.
Forests transforming into chaos of colours, clear blue water bodies reflecting the magic.
Leaves breathing their last breaths, trees shedding them, saying goodbyes, letting go!
One of its kind farewell, so amazing, so breathtaking.
