Autumn's Awakening

A Poetic Reflection on the Beauty and Wisdom of Change

By Zorica MalicPublished 3 months ago 1 min read

Aloof, the autumn air appears,

Acrimonious whispers in my ears.

Anguished thoughts, they come and go,

Aberrant feelings ebb and flow.

All around, the amber leaves,

Aflame with life, as autumn weaves

An intricate tapestry of gold,

Auspicious scenes that I behold.

Alone, I wander through the wood,

Absorbing all, as a thoughtful mood

Awakens within me, pure and bright,

Ardently seeking wisdom's light.

Amidst the trees, a peaceful calm,

Awaits my soul like a healing balm.

Altruistic thoughts now fill my mind,

As I leave my cares far behind.

At last, I see life's grand design,

Awe-inspiring, so sublime.

And as I stand here, strong and tall,

All else fades, and I hear the call.

A call to live, to love, to be,

An awakened soul, pure and free.

Anew, I start to walk ahead,

Abandoning all that I once dread.
