Awesome Colours of Autumn - the Mellower Season

Spring is the most loved seasons of all when there are flowers everywhere, multicolored, eye catching and sweet smelling. But ever wondered the beauty of autumn when ever leaf is a flower?
 Yes, I really mean it. When the cold winds of winters start to blow and the leaves start to fall, they cover the entire landscape with such beautifully coloured leaves of varying shades of pale and yellow that one is left spellbound.
Autumn is also called the fall which commences from late September continues through early winters. It is the time of transition of green leaves  to light yellow, deep gold, orange, crimson and dark red. The landscape looks so beautiful that compelled Albert Camus to say: “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. “ 
Though the falling leaves are dying, they die with such a grace that saying goodbye to them is difficult. John Barrows say: “How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days.” Yes the last days are fascinating. And walking over these colourful leaves with the chirpy cries of the dying leaves  beneath one's feet is a fun of another kind.

Autumn is the season when the poets and writers are at their best for the sadness coupled with beauty is much more difficult to describe than the freshness of spring. Stanley Horowitz describes the autumn season the best: “Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.”


The autumn leaves have a language of their own. The Autumn leaves tell of a season of letting things go, it can also be a season of renewal and rebirth. For every goodbye is a harbinger for many welcomes, smiles and happiness. When it is autumn, do go out and walk on the dried leaves, for they had once adorned the trees with varying shades of greens. Though one can feel the nostalgia of someone going, springs erases such melancholy and renews life once again.
