Yellow leaves

Yellow leaves; their edges cut by zig-zag magic scissors
by a child idle on an afternoon holiday.
Yellow fall on green lawn:
Like hope discarded, like love gone.

Windows fuzzy with cold memories
of sunny faraway morns witness
the flight of orange-yellow leaves
that swirl and tango their last dance.

My dear Gauri, very well written, keep it up...I am so glad that you are back into your natural flow of poetic stream ... winter is a phase which comes and goes, but life prevails underneath the yellow leaves and the frozen waters of oceans and rivers...

:) A NYC winter is something to experience at least once. The lights seem brighter, houses seem more welcoming and the people seem warmer.
