Feather's in the Wind

by Maple Tree   Jan 28, 2019

I began to fall
like a soft, summer rain
in early may;
as the nest lays empty.

Twigs from a dying mother
laced with wind, earth and
leaves of tear drops left behind.

My decay was a rapid wildfire
spreading through winters chill
of depression's cry- soft, painful

Bark of my body; consumed
with judgement, guilt-
a genetic imperfection
no song of hope for the weary;

who scuffle by in early spring.

Blood of my roots escape me
as passerby's trip over memories
nobody speaks of, except in poetry;

the voice is gone, feathers fly
and the echos mix with the moons

all you will hear is our song
each time leaves scatter in the wind....

    I feel so much in this and I know I'm going to read it a third and fourth time. So much of your heart and soul and nature is in this and I simply have few words. You truly make a connection and your voice is heavy with that song and feelings of sadness.

    Love always.

    How beautiful is the description in each and every line.

    This brought me chills!! I am not sure if it’a alright to say this, but I see guilt in the pleasure of living. I am sorry if I’m wrong. <3

    But if I could I would like to open your creative brain, dissect it (I am not bad hehehe) , and see how those words are generated :)

      my sweet flower Petal,

      I take the pain and sadness in my heart, and as most everyone knows, Nature and I connect on a spiritual level, so I mix the two... and this is what I write... <3 hugs you
