Curtins Closed

I must keep my curtins closed or spend a restless night
betraying all the confidence that I had placed in me.
When emotions congregate in mounds of Autumn leaves
I can not tell my soul that all is well.
For once the leaves have left the tree and faltered to the ground
no wind can blow them back and nurture dies.
Leaving their repose a hapless journey with the wind
before ascending heaven clothed in black.
When I see my Autumn leaves I have a restless night
and dream of ways to hold them in their place.
All through the night I suffer, giving solace to the tree,
while it, without compassion never offers solace back.

------------------
Lorene

Yesterday is history,
tomorrow just a mystery.
And if today is good to me,
it will beat the heck out of day before yesterday!

This is beautiful, Ohme and sad at the same time. So touching.

OhMe - Comfort and solace I offer you.
I sway like the
weeping willow in the wind,
to comfort you with
showing you that
the winds may blow ...
but they only bend ...
they do not break my boughs.

I hope you find comfort in knowing
that you are safe in the hearts of
many friends.
Love ~Marge~

Denise, thank you.
Jewel, thanks and yes, for me it is.
Marge, I have always felt welcome here. To feel safe in another's heart is even more important. So, thanks. I needed that!

I never spoke to the tree to find out what it feels when the leaves are gone...perhaps I will write that into my next one. Beautiful poem.
