Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

The Silent Witness!

In response to Sue’s Thursday photo prompt # Avenue 

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humor… light or dark, whatever you choose.



In robes of fresh greens

the trees stand in perfect sync

a witness to the generations grow

walking hand in hand under its canopy

privy to their candid conversations,

wary of intimate moments of solitude

holding on to  the myriad untold secrets

lending a silent ear to the

cries of the grieving souls.

The cool breeze whispers

heralding in new seasons,

nostalgic memories gently

thawed by the warm sunshine

to create new ones!
