Still

I still love you and

feel stiff sore mornings.

I tell myself, "It's all downhill from here."


It's ok.


Tops of our tall green pines

weighty, eighty feet of grey, brown barking oak as

wintered Spring holding it's breath


still.


At the top of deepest gasp,

at the bottom of devoid;

the forest is motionless and waiting

so still.


How fast the fade of day!

We take a peek, then look away and

                    

the remains, remain


still.

How you delicately navigate themes of love, loss, and the passage of time. The imagery of tall green pines and weighty oak trees evokes a sense of permanence juxtaposed with the fleeting nature of life. The poem's rhythmic flow and meditative tone invite readers to contemplate the transient beauty of existence and the inevitability of change. Loving this... still.

This 'Still' mostly exists in the poet's life only. Nowadays, people are optimal with their sharing and are very fast to turn the page. '... the remains, remain...' Ah! Just love your work.

The rings on the trunk number one more every year and the bark now thick and a little craggy yet still here, just like that mighty big pine tree...

Marvellous metaphor E. Much enjoyed this one!

The word play on double meanings is fun and even some words like "peek that sounds like Peak" is great. Beyond this it sounds a bit psychedelic with pinches of Lewis Carrol. Very nicely done

I'm stuck in my own frigid place right now. I'm a bit stir crazy, or perhaps just plain crazy. I don't know which. It's cold, and it's windy. I used to be a long distance runner when I was younger. I had a motto, "I will run in the wind, I will run in the cold, but I will not run in the cold wind." Guess I'm stuck here for now, in the doldrums of life.
Great poem, by the way. It got me to thinkin.

I feel this completely. Winter is a more depressing solemn time of year for me that I don’t enjoy except the holidays.

I despise the cold and the snow burr
