Such a yearning for the loved one, very touching.
the image of the fir tree and the speaker pining makes the yearning so very poignant....
How many firs dies for your love letters?
I feel the sad longing here. The missing is palpable. Powerful!
I like that you have used a series of haiku for this love poem. I feel how you miss her, old egg.
like the pine longing for the sky...or the rain.lovely.
pine for you...smiles...nice play on the trees...and its hard when you know they are out of reachbut the feelings are still so strong...
Feeling that feeling, giving it to us--such a fine pure image--you are already among the trees. Stay here awhile.
Oh, how I know that feeling! We could likely get our Master's in Longing..........this is beautifully written, and deeply felt.
I can feel you heart in this sad, sensitive, loving poem.
I specially like the last one, very emotional response ~ Grace
When you even hear the song of the fir-tree -- the loss goes deep..
the longing is palpable in this...it is tough to deal with the feelings when the loved one is so far out of reach
The yearning is so deep and heart-felt...beautifully penned... :-)
Love the last stanza, a great double meaning.
the sadness is plausible..
Awww, this is so beautifully sad. And very good :)
Lovely. Interesting question at the end; makes me wonder if the piece is about growth or longing.
It is longing of course Archna, invoked by the scent of the pines. But you guessed that didn't you? My wife and I were bird watchers and often found ourselves totally alone in forests and the pine scent recalls that.
This is a heavy poem yet it feels light to read it. It's the kind that evokes more emotion as it sinks in. Well done.
