Enchanted with Autumn....

One of the most beautiful things I saw in this trip, is not one thing, but a season...

There is a season called Autumn... There is no autumn from where I come from...
Only summer..and the rains..

Spring is like the perfect dressed ,cheerful , beautiful girl... Everybody likes her,I would like her too... but to me, autumn is the simple, smiling, plain girl that you see... The girl who is not beautiful...but cute... in just the plain clothes she is on... spring's beauty is in colours... Autumn ...Its something else...


How beautiful can death be? Just as beautiful as life can be...Autumn is beautiful...In a way that is special... That is what autumn is... beauty found where we don't expect it... A raindrop, a waterfall, snowfall, Autumn leaf... what is common to them... Their beauty lies in their fall....

You see, in autumn, Brown is not brown.. Brown is orange,brown is gold ... filling the ground, spreading a floor... gliding through the air.. downfall.. the air is not cold.. not cold to freeze..but cool enough to give the tingling goosebumps..The sun is out..but its not burning... Just enough shine to to light your day up...

It makes me feel like falling in love... I wonder... about the reason its said, people 'fall' in love... :-)

The streets which look washed n cleaned every morning from the rain at the nights...but the real beauty is the sun shining on the wetness glistning... I dono.. everything seems to be happen in slow motion...n in sepia... The cold breeze... touching your earlobes... Autumn..

Its a transition... from one holiday season to another... from summer into christmas... Its a transition....from heat to cold... Summer is beautiful... Snow is beautiful too...but the most beautiful thing, is the travel of the season from summer to winter... the most beautiful thing is autumn...

But..Would I like it to be autumn always? :-) No... Autumn is beautiful.. yes just as i said..But it's the summer heat n winter cold that make Autumn so much more special.. Autumn is like the beauty of a girl's tears... My girl is most beautiful when she cries... But I wouldn't want her to cry always... I want her tears just enough for my fingers wipe... I want autumn, only as much...

I have heard that people fall in love with books and poetry.. I have always wondered how can some one fall in love with a block of text.. I can feel it now.. The blowing leaves just caused goosebumps on my skin.. An autumn dew drop just escaped from my eye.. How beautiful can death be? I am waiting for you to say that.. Please will you? (Honestly I dint mean I want you to die.. I just want to hear something about it from you!!!)
