Broken Lynn Greyling

Ancient tree

Caught by Winter storm

Breaks open

No red blood

Sounds close by in the forest

My pen does stop now

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. when I see a broken tree, I feel impatient. when is it going to come crashing down? when is it going to rot so that new plant and mineral life and eventually new trees will be born.

  2. How many sunsets and years passed by while the Ancient Tree stood watch. Now ended by a WInter Storm. Both were destined in each other’s path. The red blood had long been pulled into the ground. Hearing the sound so close by. How disturbing. Probably a tree passed by on walks into the wood. So delicately you stop your pen from writing further. Taking in the moment. How beautiful you write this story. I could feel it as if I heard it happening just outside. You used all the words so well, they fit perfectly. Thank you for joining in. I enjoyed your tale of the fallen tree whose time had passed. – jk
