Tree Tale @nittin_paul
It's winter now and snowing. I wonder who'd clear your nest if you choose to come back. Where would you be? Maybe you're flying in a blue, sun-stroked sky, wading those wings through the clouds.
I still remember that evening in the spring when you moved into me. I was green and full then. You chose me out of everyone here, like you wanted to pick a lonely one. You snuggled between my branches and made me your home. Everyday I watched you make that nest with twigs and leaves brought one by one. You chirped on my arms and sang those songs every evening. You slept in my arms every night as I looked after you ethereally. You flew out with the morning sun and I spent all day waiting for you to come back; and when you returned, I was brought back to life by the tunes you hummed. I just stood there, silent ever. On some days, the wind helped me dance to your rhythm; otherwise, I'd stood there always- looking at you, listening to you. I have no count of the days we were together, but I always saw the winter coming.
It was time for me to change- to shed the old leaves and wear new ones. It was getting cold, and I knew that you had to go.
One morning with a golden sun came by and I watched your wings spread through that winter wind. The last I saw of you was a silhouette outlined in shimmering gold.
I shed myself like tears that season; how it felt to not be a home anymore and miss your evening songs everyday.
I have still kept your home safe in me. You have left your feathers in there like you were never gone. I keep hoping that you'd fly back to me someday when the sun shines gold and find that home again, before my trunk wrinkles old.#inspiration #quotes #poetry #quoteoftheday #lovequotes #motivationalquotes #inspirationalquotes #writersofinstagram #writer #writing #words #lifequotes #qotd #thoughts #quotestoliveby #instaquote #inspirational #motivational #wordporn #wordsofwisdom #quotesoftheday #writersofig #quotestagram #successquotes #quotesaboutlife #quotesdaily #instaquotes #positivequotes #dailyquotes #wordstoliveby
