A Longing Ache

Written In Response To:

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #85 – There is no restriction on the length or format of the piece. 


Ancient tree woman

melancholy ponderings

of when she was

but a seedling

young, tender, delicate

reminiscent of past loves

and other experiences

she was carefree

living in wonder

never concerned with

a future of settled

and although she

has gained great

wisdom through the ages

still, there is one

thing left unfulfilled

a longing ache

for a love eternal
