By Joji Varghese Kuncharia is from the Anthology "Autumn Lullabies" published at Amazon.
The Autumn leaves lay ladened,
Like a sluggard on the path way,
A wind from the East swept it away,
Swirled like pestilence in the wild.
Autumn shedding is no loss in fact,
As the leaves all wither away,
It germinates a new fresh array,
And renewed life springs up intact.
The Autumn of my life has come,
To sweep away all filth from within,
As chaff is driven away as napkin,
Thus to receive power to overcome.
There's an Autumn in every one's life,
Mine was the worst ever to come,
Life was dwindled and in tantrum,
And it was for everyone to scoff.
Life had become an unending strife,
Tossed to and fro in the crosswind,
And driven away by the whirlwind,
With no control over my own life.
I passed through the Valley of Baka,
But the Autumn rains covered it with pools,
As benign showers turn a wilderness,
Into a garden of life changing saga.
Life is prolonged in full vigour,
Each Autumn is a blessing to come,
Every year is truly made awesome,
Paving a way to rebuild and prosper.
