This is not ~ a free verse

This is not a banyan tree
Her arms span a hundred years
of stories as you turn her every leaf
rustling up rememberances
from her soul as she smiles
or dabs a teardrop that drips
her secret sadness to be whispered into the earth

  1. A tender tribute. It took me googling the banyon tree and I found that it is a very special tree historically and spiritually. Your quadrille echoes that and I enjoyed the personification.
