Ancestors

Ancestors

A Poem by PandaPeaceful

            Upon that
willow tree
I find my
ancestors
carved in,
It was
tranquil
Wind~
interlocking
with strands
of my brown hair,
I whisper
nonsense,
hoping my
hellos
receive replies
from souls
long passed.

Nicely-crafted flowing ideas in your poem. I love willow trees, known for being flexible (nice symbol). I love being reminded of carving on tree bark to capture a moment to remember later. But most of all, I love how the description of hair brings to mind the way the willow tree has long fluttering strands with leaves! I believe in tree connections! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

You've captured a subtle yet mystical moment here! There are times when I've seen very old places and artifacts, and I've wondered the same thing - is the past ever fully erased or is there a lingering essence there that I can connect with? I love the gentle feeling of exploration and self-doubt towards the end of your poem: "I whisper nonsense, hoping my hellos receive replies". Nice piece!

This poem is the exact and specific reason I drink in the park, officer.
