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.

A huge amber in the making, fossilized resin with tree inside.
Tree resembling a twig, a leaf, branches resembling veins dried.
Precious gemstone waiting to be formed, valued priceless.
Adorning heirlooms of memories, to be passed on to generations.
But only the resin being the golden orange sunlight, but only the amber our world.
The heirloom a morning cherished and saved, in the locker of our hearts impearled.
Sheet of water with depths unknown.
Thousands of secrets in its core.
High mountains surrounding, in eerie calm.
Holding the water,as if, in their palm.
Trees standing guard, erect in a line.
On the banks of the lake divine.
Sunrays peeping from behind the cloud.
Waiting for Sunshine to explode.
New hope, new day.
Fresh start, fresh ways.
These photographs of Pine forest were posted by my cousin Harsh Prasad while he was in Nepal.
The trees look intimidating with their straight trunks. Tall, arrogant, ready to hurt to survive, just like the human mind…only humility, humbleness and self content can make way in such a forest, to give rise to empathy for others.
Trees of ego growing like spears, on the fertile land of the unconscious.
Rising up to the sky, battling their own demons by piercing hearts of others…
…but only humility and humbleness could pave a path amongst them.
leading to love in the heart, for others.
