Inner clock alarms, it is autumn
and soon the winter would arrive.
They would be covered by snow,
going to face difficulty in thrive.

Falling leaves in Autumn

Inner clock alarms, it is autumn
and soon the winter would arrive.
They would be covered by snow,
going to face difficulty in thrive.

Tree thinks, holding leaves along,
would just waste the stored water.
To save from physiological drought
living without leaves is better.

“Leaves! I say, in state of hunger
I may not hold and nurture you.
Better you shed off my branches
before you are covered by snow.”

Leaves realize, paucity of water,
their mother tree, going to face.
Better, leave her house and go
to the grandmother’s residence.

They would foster her strength
and inspire to nurture her daughter.
During the period of snow fall too
dearth, she may not have to suffer.

The cycle moves ever on.
Consider the lily, the resurrection flower.
