When Autumn bids adieu
by Gowri Bhargav   18 th December, 2023


The leaves have fallen–russet, purple and brown,

Autumn has bid adieu leaving aside a skeletal town,

The winds are cold, harsh, and bitter,

The bare ground quivers as she prepares for days colder.


The warblers have gone after singing their last song,

The wait for the sprightly spring is too long,

The mute landscape dwells in quiescence,

Alas! It's devoid of mirthful cadence.


Hark! Mellow snowflakes from the bleached firmament

Descend slowly like winged ornaments,

Slowly with persistence, they settle in piled up layers,

Bejeweled with dangling icicles, the once bare boughs whisper ardent prayers.


‘Tis December! Winter reigns in all its glory,

Infinite yards of snow weave magical stories of fantasy.

Verses of Life
By Snigdha Agrawal 20th December 2023

Pencil and notepad

it's the only world 

where I am myself

only place where

I can confide

with no facade

nor false glow

uncaring about

being judged

sized up

you guessed right

this path, I walk solo

Summer, Spring, Winter & Fall
By Sasha Clark,  22nd December  2023

Mint Leaves

Icy art drapes pine fronds
Sparkly ice bits dance down
from ivory puffiness
To twirl on frozen watery expanses

Frilly fronds poke out from
still cold humus
Bundles of fur emerge from
deepest sleep
Flying flocks return to Northern climes

Sun shimmers down in baking waves
Laughter sounds from watery expanse
Sleeping soundly under star strewn canopy
Delectable smell wafts from campsites

Leaves transform to rainbow garb
Dancing down to nourish the earth
Small furry bundles relax
in their leafy blankets
