It is a cold windy day
I hear the rustle of the leaves
And the sound of the winds.
I look out of my window
I see the tall trees swaying in the breeze
Trying to resist the mighty wind.
But the winds are at play.

There are moments of calm
When the trees try to stand straight.
Before another gust of wind.
sweeps them down.

Sometimes I feel like these trees
Feeble at times, yet
Trying to stand tall and resist whatever
Ails me and be strong.

Starry: I cud not see ur post in ur blog and saw thru' comments page. Not sure if its the problem from my side or yours.

Donno worry.. You are a strong person and can fight the wind with your strength and confiddence.

hey starry :)
may be you are the wind at play,
may be the trees can force you to stay,
asking you not to sway.
so don't move anyway
and rest when you may.

Hi dear starry
Be strong...

Be like a tree
and stand and sway
without a care...

And have the fragrant
rain-washed wind
fill you with much courage
and take away all despair!

Blessings to you Starry!

Nice blog!!! The tree is alwats strong, its just that leaves have to go so that new life can come in again...

chitra 3:37 AM  

Hey, that's the spirit.

Your poem reminded me of a english story that I read in my school. it is about a sick girl who feels that she would die the day the last leaf falls. On a stormy night, her neighbour who is a painter, takes trouble to paint that leaf to keep the girl alive!

Please dont think that I am comparing you with that gilrl. Sometimes certain words remind you of some stories which are deep down in our heart.

Love to have u back amidst us.
