Cotton Candy Trees

No more, those blissful days
when we watched cotton candy trees
blossom in the Spring,
listened to the trickle of silver streams
and the whisper of the wind
through tall grasses.

All was well with the world
and life was full of promise.

But its an ill wind that blows now,
stirring my soul with bleak despair.
Everything comes to an end,
and I can see it in your eyes.

We are left with only an empty silence,
each with our own thoughts.

It’s the end of all things,
of all things that we once knew.

You are leaving....

but I will follow you.

    Love this very sad but oh so true poem concerning life as it once was, and love Thomas's comment/poem to go along with it! Such great poets here! ! ! Although it is sad, it is still amazing, Val, and I can relate all to well. {{{hugs}}}

    there are hints of despair
    none no breath of fresh air
    there is a balance
    to deaths demands
    for it brings along rewards
    in it's other hand
    Time's due, collection nye
    the train ticket is overdue
    sit by the window
    watch as your life's pass
    separated by only reality 's glass

    Even when thoughts are very sad, there is still comfort to be found in sharing them.

    The pessimistic veil being transparent and the melancholic note being quite natural in drawing such pictures, dear Valerie, you always stick to your poetic urge of experimenting with the innovative in painting life... Go ahead.

  • Valsa George (5/17/2013 1:27:00 AM)

    Again the tone of melacholy! ! You are leaving / But I will follow you! Instead of being crest fallen, follow him and call him back! Very poignant! !
