Autumn in City

On these long trailing charcoal roads,
colourful leaves loiter around,
 a nature's carpet on  concrete.

City dwellers rejoice the scene,
this tiny thing of joy,
paints the landscape in between.

A city that shines in neon lights,
knows not of earthy lights,
prays to the sky, moon and stars,
to sprinkle glitter on the dark.

A balmy air with scented leaves,
reminds the city of autumnal treats.

  4. The city must be jealous of the country, where Autumn goes all out. How well your poem paints the small miracles that remind the city that not all is lost, that there is life in the small natural treats (especially if we take the time to enjoy them). Delicious.

  6. I think that city dwellers need that reminder of nature... of the season and the weather... maybe it will keep us human
