The trees sing for you ..

You would have heard,

The mighty trees swaying above,

No breeze was seen or felt,

Yet the trees sung their songs non stop;

You would have seen it clearly,

The stories flashing in your eyes,

The whispers of the past and futures

Serenading your subconscious self;

Life and death,two sides of the same coin

Enlightenment comes with wishes

That have no reason or rhyme

To pass from heart to lips of the wise mind.

Far into the soil, the roots grow strong

With every new generation,

A new ribbon tied to the branches

Already laden with hopes of souls long gone.

  1. This is a lovely tree poem, Pratibha, and I love that they are singing (rather like the Ents in Lord of the Rings). I especially like the ‘whispers of the past and futures / Serenading your subconscious self’ and the ‘new ribbon tied to the branches / Already laden with hopes of souls long gone’.

Lets get the conversations rolling ..
