In Memory of Wood

Lay me down in groves of green

Sibilant with the whispering

of millions of leaves in the wind

yet to taste the fire and singe.

Let me feel the dappling

of sun filtered, lightly streamed

through a high strung canopy

birds aloft in melody

birds aloft in memory

spiralling in on ash filled breeze

search the earth for sun grown trees.

-Sarah Ahmed

Thank you Thursday Poets Rally for the Perfect Poem Award

It means a lot that you trouble

To read all my ramblings on topics narrow and broad

And are kind enough not to burst my bubble!

I nominate  Aechoes from the heartland for the next award.
