Autumn..

Autumn...it have arrived
The trees are deep in a slumber...
And the park benches...all alone...
Yesterdays colorful sunset is now tomorrows hope
People have put on a heavy face; Or is it the heavy dress...
Long cots, mufflers, caps...
Yesterday we were friends; But now heavy silences have fallen between us...
And I begin to wonder ”is life only a rat race?"
If only we don’t have deadlines...
Or, is the hustle and rush our own way to protect our life
From understanding the truth - that our life cannot be complete...
Am not sure...
Retrospection - should I examine my mind? Or should I examine my life???
Am confused...and am restless...
A faceless stranger, I am to myself...

"Yesterdays colorful sunset is now tomorrows hope" - Lovely lines
"I am to myself" - Reminds me of the line in a tamil song "nee mattum dhan indha ulagatile unaku thunai ..." Meaning "The only company for u in this world in U".
Nice post Anoop.

Nice poem! You don't like autumn very much, I take it? I don't much either...but I love the winter...and songs about snow...and everything red and green. I'm a sucker for things like that. But perhaps there's not such a pervasive holiday spirit in Bangalore? That's the best thing about winter.

What mind says, life goes on isn't it.

a confused soul is one that seeks to grow and seek better options.....so you dont need to examine your mind or life - examine options that will take you out of this confusion...

found you link from another blog :)
