Tears Of The Tree

Nae's Nest —  February 12, 2014 — 3 Comments

Tears Of The Tree

Fire burns in the land

Flames shouting out

Beating a path

A trail of havoc

And wrath

A great flame

Rises up, lashes out

A searing flash

Across my back

Pain and agony

Where to run

Where to hide

Trail of fire

After me

Burning flesh

Searing pain

Agony

I will die

I will die

Hiding under

A great willow

Weeping branches

Surround me

Tears of the tree

Envelope me

My tears mingle

With the tree

Flame is searching

Flame all around

Tears of the tree

Shelter me

Holding me close

Willow so mighty

Willow so strong

What makes you cry?

What makes you cry?

I cry for you

I cry for all

I will shelter

From the storm

I will hold

And keep you warm

I am compassion

My tears are for you

Stay with me

If you believe

I will protect thee

Nothing will

Harm you

Have faith
Have hope

You may rest

I will soothe

Do not cry

Do not cry

Leaving on the

Great tree

Feeling the strength

Shielding me

Weeping branches

Protecting from harm

No more pain

No cause for alarm

I am so tired

The flame is

Burning low

Small fire

Losing

Power

It will die

It will die

Willow In The Tree

Nae's Nest —  March 24, 2012 — Leave a comment

The man in the moon

Gets all of the attention

Seen by all

Gains him population

But I much prefer

The Willow in my tree

She sways and sings softly

Tunes just for me

No noisy traffic

No blaring horns

Just me

Under the willow

Feeling forlorn

Enjoying her shade

Given joyfully each day

Enjoying the nap

As lazily she sways

Lulling me to sleep

In a hammock built for two

Gently we will sleep

As we listen to the tune

Her branches singing out

In the soft summers breeze

A sweet lullaby

I accept with such

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz’s

(ease)
