From the Pocket of a Dream

*When Forest Weeps*

For my son


The forest outside my window whispers vaguely
through the thick November darkness
Her mirror of mist stares into skies
hiding her drowsy eyes of green
Her mossy womb cries out for the sun
The time is ripe only for sadness

The distant stars do not hear her futile clamour
Birds on the departure do not care
she trembles along with the winds
while they ruffle her hair of yellow leaves
Her tired wooden arms
are vainly outstretched
in an unbearable craving for nutrition
For a warm embrace of light

Where are you now
in this darkest hour while my forest weeps
through the sunset of emotions
afraid of dying here upon the threshold of winter
Where are you now
while my heart eagerly turns back the time
drowning into a precious memory
of the day
when I held you for the very first time
The day you came and took me to a journey
into your smile
The day you came
and lit up my thick November darkness

    When I commented on my wife’s post, I told her that her piece is nice. She couldn’t just accept the word nice because she want awesome, and then I asked her again if she knew a word more than awesome… I tell you this because your master piece is more than awesome my friend. Every world travels deep in my soul, and you make me ponder every world I decoded every time I repeat and repeat reading this! Thumbs up! 🙂

    your poem shimmers of melancholy, love and a deep spiritual need
    for another soul once held close.

    wow, this is absolutely beautiful, Eclipe. I’m so impressed!!! I love how you describe the forest.

    I have to check the meaning of some words just to be sure 🙂 Actually reading poems is a good way to learn new words in a foreign language. 🙂
