Sycamore Trees Sigh

Sycamore Trees Sigh

A Poem by Patricia Wedel

Autumn Apples falling all around on warm sunny ground... 

the humming and sounds of buzzing Bumble Bees 

Breezes blow through colored Leaves speckled with 

Candy Corn kisses given under the boughs of trees... 

Two Sisters with their Moms eyes and Dads Smile 

pose under a Sycamore Tree where History is hidden 

for all to Believe and feel the Ambience of Freedom... 

A Poem posted from their father's Mother Patricia... 

Amen...

Sycamore trees are magical, they sigh and whicper scerets to anyone who stands under them and listens... and they remember the giggles of two sisters who played under them, had their picture taken (did you notice how it stood taller just before the camera snap???).... there was a row of Sycamore trees that lined our street where I lived as a boy, you could hear ot laugh as you rested your head on it to count for the game of hide and seek.... fun days those.....

very much enjoyed your poem Pat...

Is there anything better than the sound of the wind talking with the trees? I really enjoyed this. Nostalgia and nature, a real one, two, punch.

Ah, what sweeter apples of the eye are there than grandchildren? Even those bees must be jealous of that sort of sweetness. Delightful poem. I enjoyed.

So, these must be your grandchildren; and a dear part of your family that you are sharing with us; a painting of them with looks of mom and dad; sitting under a sycamore tree, where history is hidden ( all the family heritage) you bring us close in to your family relationships that you so treasure.
A lovely poem in a lovely season.
Warm regards,
B.

I love how you bring us this photo in painted words, as well as in a family collage. I know how much you love to share your photos, which I enjoy very much. You are one of the few photo sharers who goes into detail to explain every photo you share. I wish others would do the same instead of posting mystery photos! Love how loving your explanations always are, showing how much these relationships mean to you. Your poem is full of sparkling descriptive delights. There are many sycamores down along the creek below my bluff (water-seeking trees) and I'm looking out over the treetops of these sycamores (((HUGS)))

I'm reminded of a strong cider scent of an apple orchard on a scenic drive before San Jose while heading to the bay area. I once stopped by the side of the road to walk along the apple trees. Your beautiful poem so reminds me of that day. Thank you Pat for sharing this lovely poem with us.
