Season of Death

Milán Galics

Why is everything so beautiful?
The colors, the smells, the weather.
You can just be part of nature,
as it slowly fades away. You can feel
its pain, hear it whispering through the winds.
But you just sit quietly, and watch them die.
Watch the leaves dancing in the air for seconds,
and then lie on the ground till they’re gone forever.
I know that I can’t do anything about it, because it’s
the way it was planned by Mother Nature,
But it’s still strange, that everyone thinks fall is the
most beautiful season, yet everything is dying.
