Winter tree


Bare branched, i stand
Naked, shivering in
Cold wind. Birds have
Deserted me.

But Spring is on its way;
New leaves will clothe me,
I shall bloom again.

I like! So identifiable.

The desolation in your stripped, bare lines go so well with the bleak image of the winter tree reassuring itself with dreams of spring :)

@Aduhi, i thought you were not supposed to like poems :)

@Calliopia, you read so well.

aduhi said...

I like the ones like this, simple and easy to read, which I can easily understand without having to scratch my head and I don't have to try and figure out what in the name of love it is all about.

EPISTEMOLOGY said...

To be honest,poetry writing is not really my cup of tea. I guess I will never be able to write down what I exactly feel. this is why, i really appreciate your efforts and the quality of your work..!!

mesjay said...

@Feddabonn, hmm.

@Epistomology, different people, different tastes and different abilities. 'Variety is the spice of life.'

Lovely, as usual, and all the more so because of the brevity. I'm still disappointed at my kids for not making more of an effort to meet you. I guess the whole train trip thing was a bit daunting for them. I hope we can still do a meet anytime you are up here.

mesjay said...

@Daydreambeliever, thanks, thanks. I do hope we can meet some time, may be on my next trip to Aizawl though i don't know when.

The kids would have wanted more fun, naturally, quite understantable.
