Under This Weeping Tree--By Julie Petersen--United States

Under This Weeping Tree

Standing under this weeping tree
Hearing raindrops fall on golden leaves
Whispers from your heart to mine
Trickles of love upon my face

A smile grows with drizzling drops
Looking up into the storm
Seeing your face within the tree
Joy cleansed tears falling on me

Golden and green swaying breeze
Waving, beckoning, mesmerizing colors
Touching, tapping, reaching down
Pulling me up into your arms

Your glow, your smile, your gentle sound
Embracing quietly, attentive, true
Eyes closing gently
Feeling you

  1. Dear Julie
    Very impressive witting as under the weeping tree feeling loves
    glow, smile, genteel sound of embracing quietly, attentive,
    true eyes closing gently, feeling you. I enjoyed it.
