While you were searching

my whereabouts,I was standing

next to an oak tree…

when all the leaves came out

of deep slumber and the wintery

dusk descended, it was about

time for me to lurk beneath

those ancient roots and search

in raven labyrinths, the meaning

of icy darkness that possesses

you and me and hibernate with

-in them till eternity…

  1. An excellently written poem.

    Funny, I was just watching a video on YouTube where a woman was singing an old Irish folk song about the Ash Grove (grove of ash trees) and I come to WordPress and you’ve written a poem about standing next to an ancient oak tree.

    1. Thanks Count, for your very kind words! Now thatโ€™s a coincidence…Oak trees , gloom and Irish folk songs…

  2. Ah, this is beyond beautiful… It really is. It gave me goosebumps. What a poem!!!!

    the meaning

    of icy darkness that possesses

    you and me and hibernate with

    -in them till eternityโ€ฆ

    1. Thanks a lot G, Iโ€™m truly humbled. Iโ€™ve been busy too and couldnโ€™t write anything. Iโ€™m glad you appreciated my words!

      1. Coming from a splendid poet like you it means a lot. I wrote this last evening despite the change in weather I felt like hibernating and not come out. May be it is the introverted me!

  3. Lovely Tanya. I know youโ€™ve been busy and itโ€™s always refreshing to see your poetic flow. ๐Ÿ™‚โค๏ธ

      1. Yes the weather is better now, I should move to Florida I feel, for perennial sunshine though!

      2. Florida has a good combination of sunshine and rain for sure – and more bugs and critters. However, it is pleasant most of the time. This past week has already been seeing the high 90s consistently. It’s not bad though until humidity kicks in, which is pretty regular. ๐Ÿ™‚

      3. Itโ€™s better than here at least, where we are confined almost 7 months inside …

      4. Oh my Tanya. You need to “break out.” I recently traveled through the Midwest, meandering along and it’s still quite cool, especially compared to the southeast. Spirits should brighten soon. ๐Ÿ™‚
