Images Of What Was


A willow stands near water
head slightly tilted
staring into the blue

the wind whispers a name
someones face appears
fresh and alluring

reflections of yesterday
soaking in it's beauty
images of what was but
is no more.

    In a reflection or in the gentle pat of a wind or on the sight of a tree, some fond faces and memories can come alive! Enjoyed this lovely write! (Report) Reply
