Poefusion - Friday 5

A secluded tree
hangs his heavy bones
above the snow

An old man with fatigue
trudging through a season
colored white and grey

But there is solace
in the monotonous
white of winter

For he knows that
his roots are still
buried in the warm core
of Earth's silent spring

And there is where
his hope lies -
entangled in the embroidery
of sleeping flowers

who will once again
be beckoned by the sun
to circle round
the skeleton tree

and thaw away
his misery

Wow! What imagery, this was a great read, and I keep on reading it! My favorite stanza:

And there is where
his hope lies -
entangled in the embroidery
of sleeping flowers

I love it, thanks so much for sharing with us!

you painted a lovely but real view of the changes we go have to go through, like the changing seasons

"...And there is where his hope lies - entangled in the embroidery
of sleeping flowers.." beautiful and mystical

Oustanding, the solitary life,
and the painful memories of an
old man, expertley captured.
Love, the embroidery of sleeping
flowers.
