Emotions uniting
Wind song through trees
Breeze stirs lake lapping
Shivering sighs, trembling leaves


Reminder: New Dustus Friday post…

  10. Hi Adam, good poem that actually made me shiver and feel cold.

    • Hi Lawrence. Tried writing a few new “four lines” after revisiting my novel notebooksβ€” discovered many short works and scribbled lines, brief sketches about topics that were off-topic at that time. lol Hope your enjoying working on your new novel. I’m trying to make time to work on mine. Cheers!

  11. ;0 very well written Adam, thank you for visiting me

  12. Hi, William πŸ™‚ Was great to see you in the One Shot gang this week. If you speak to Viola, please tell her our thoughts are with her and her family. I posted a candle in memory of Larry when I heard the news. It’s still on the home page and makes me sad each time I see it.
    Thank you

  13. I felt the cold down my spine in this Adam….very good as always x

  14. Lovely personification here, Adam. Are your leaves feeling any warmer and have your sighs quieted? I picture this tree as very strong against the cold harsh winters of life. πŸ™‚ Heartspell

    • At present, my leaves are warm and sighs quiet. lol Michigan winters are tough sometimes, though I absolutely love the snow! Happy belated birthday, heartspell πŸ™‚

  15. I see the trembling leaves in the morning, stirring up emotions.
