The quiet after a festival or a big event leaves such an empty space inside you. I guess it's all that energy disappearing so suddenly.
You painted the picture accurately.

Such events you tend to be three minded about such as "Isn't it great?' then "When will it end" and finally "Hope it comes back next year!" However the leaves are glad when it does!
