Autumn Nights - Poem by Sukanta Mohapatra

Slowly but steadily
I am falling for
the trap of autumn night,

Shedding away inhibitions
like falling leaves
in total surrender
to the whims of winds

Passionate mating cries
of stray dogs
echoing in my mind
almost like a chant
awakening the animal in me

To celebrate
This season of
Decay and recreation
salvation and passion….

    Amazing poem. I liked it.........
    Passionate mating cries
    of stray dogs
    echoing in my mind
    almost like a chant
    awakening the animal in me
