** My Weeping Willow Tree! - Poem by RAJ NANDY

MY WEEPING WILLOW TREE!
Somewhere within my heart unknowingly,
A weeping willow had taken roots secretly!
It got nurtured over the years by my forlorn
and sad thoughts;
By many heartaches and unrequited love, -
The mind seemed to have forgot!
Now the willow has become a full grown
tree!
It bends over my mind like a shadow -
to torture me!
It sheds its salty tears periodically, -
The willow has now become a part of
Me!
-Raj Nandy

    There is probably a legend about a Willow Tree. I find them simply beautiful. Just as she weeps
    I am sure she can dry tears with the swish of her glorious tresses. 10 Karin Anderson (Report) Reply

    touching metaphor. Incidently i always wonder why its called a weeping willow.
    one learns in life that you have to carry your cross alone, very poignant poem.
    i too was inspired to write a haiku- Weeping Willows sometime back.
