While boss prefers Spring, for the Sakuras,

I personally prefer Autumn, for the Momijis.

"More reflective," I tell him.

Spring embodies growth and energy and youth;

All is sprouting, thriving.

Autumn, on the other hand, embodies

Maturing, shedding and age.

Maybe I am getting old.

 

Look at those colours!

The last beauty of nature.

Before it fades away, completely.

 

Keat's "To Autumn", 1819

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.
