The tree outside my house
overnight it turned from green to yellow
teaching us an important lesson
to be ready and prepared for a change.
The fall is here to welcome the winter
when silent work gets done under cover
to manifest in fresh green spring
to be followed by riot of summer’s colour!
Let us learn from nature to let go the useless
hibernate from externals and seek within
to find the real precious treasure
that’s secretly embedded deep in!
