Fresh cool air, fills the lungs,
butterflies in the stomach, that unexplained joy brings.
Chill in the breeze, clears the head,
delightful morning dew drops, shivering buds.
No more scorching Sun, no more incessant rains.
No need for warm clothes yet, pleasant walks again.
Full canopy of trees, lush carpet rolled out of green,
greenary everywhere, like velvet cape of a queen.
Festivities round the corner, new memories to remember,
best time of the year, the month that is, September.

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.

The sky is getting clearer, clouds beginning to disperse with winds of change.
The wind is getting cooler, Sun beginning to shine more often over mountain range.
Days, evenings not somber anymore, grays converting into vibrant landscapes.
Wetness drying up, no more downpours, colours popping up like lady’s drapes.
Relief from heat, break from the rains. Seems like the Earth is ready to exhale.
Bunches of red, contrasting with greens of leaves.
Little flower umbrellas, sheltering insects from grieves.
Cool September breeze, giving respite from the heat.
Making flowers blossom, getting ready for Autumn greet.
Veteran leaves turning yellow, saying goodbyes ready to let go.
Magic of Autumn hiding within each fold, forests waiting to transform in motion slow.
