Like Fading Memories

Rating: 5.0

Ruffles the slender and
Lanced shaped leaves
Of the willow tree.

The yellow and slight
Brown leaves slowly released
Themselves from the branches
Softly flowing to the ground.

They are like great memories

This poem unfolds the symbolism associated with willow tree. The gentle breeze ruffles (kisses) the slender leaves…reflection of love, emotions, tears, sadness and what not….natural phenomenon…the truth..The title provides us great philosophical insights. Beautifully penned….. Top score!
