~ Heights of Standing ~

Dead tree w/ sun.
Originally uploaded by flight404.

I'm reaching out for life
Glimpses of light
How many tears had spilt?
Uncounted aches of nights
Wailing inside
Yet standing in height
I remain to live
Beyond obscurities of life

My fixation as I was returning home today, how dead trees stand so firm …Beautiful facing the wind as though still living….a dead trunk to some but don’t you think the way these trees remain there a lesson for us..

Do think about it…

The photo belongs to flight404 in the

Many thanks for the inspiration

Nasra...your thoughts here are somewhat similar to those I have had in recent poems. I understand!

Odd buffalo-shaped clouds gallop
across the cold November sky.
I would have missed them completely
were it not for the perfect-circle full moon
glowing hauntingly bright at their backs.
Stripped of their leaves,
the naked skeleton-like trees reach into the sky,
as though searching for answers why
these near extinct clouds roam restlessly--
like my heart, which longs for peace
from its incessant wanderings.
Why does the light torment the darkness so,
and why does my heart suddenly long to be filled
by the moon and her secrets?

I've wrote something rather similar yet about the sun. I'll be posting it soon insha'allah within my blog. Though, yours has a moral behind it which is very thoughtful of you while mine is a simple intellect that has been profound in a form of a poem. *Smiles*

Its true that dead trees stand on this earth and most of the time think 'when is it going to be cut off or thrown away...and yet here you found beauty and inspired a ripple of thoughts that reached me and many of your readers.
