The Blossom Tree

Spread the love

A soft glow in place of soured exists;
fresh yellow lost,
almost hidden in the backgroundโ€”
I am wanted
against better judgement, under the canopy of clouds
and more
by the side of waves of walnut waters.
I, the blossom tree am the epitome of your bittersweet knowledge;
my dark sodden limbs
burdened
with the sins
of earlier decades.
Break me,
then cover my veins with dustโ€”
living in twilight isn’t half as bad as one oblivious of the truth of dawn.
In the end we are left with parables.

  1. This is beautifully done, Sanaa. I love the ‘dark sodden limbs’ which create a unique contrast to the yellow blossoms.

  2. Enjoyed this so muchโฃ๏ธ๐ŸŒนI especially like the lines โ€œ my dark sodden limbs
    burdened
    with the sins of earlier decades.โ€ ๐Ÿ™

  3. The opening lines just glimmer with โ€˜fresh yellow lostโ€™, a delightful invitation to read on. I enjoyed this poem, Sanaa, especially the internal rhyme and imagery of the lines:
    โ€˜I, the blossom tree am the epitome of your bittersweet knowledge;
    my dark sodden limbs
    burdened
    with the sins of earlier decades.โ€™
