    A perfect image of autumn..

  3. I agree! There can never be a poem as beautiful as autumn! Autumn surpasses anything that a human could compose. Beautiful poem, Sanaa.

  5. Still as resonant and lovely as it was during the first read, Sanaa! You have a very tender and evocative way with words.
