Y: Yarling #AtoZChallenge


Yarling: wailing, howling

There’s a litchi tree 


And it is mine

That is where I turn to

To hide among the branches

That sweep

To the ground.

I buried your ashes there


That litchi tree 

That they cut down

They would not listen, ” that tree” 

They said 

“Has to be gone”.

Under that litchi tree

Where my yarling voice 

Is still heard

On nights like this

Where your gentle words

Travel across time

To soothe and heal.

There is a litchi tree somewhere

And it belongs to me.

    Beautiful and sad. That tree is still with the narrator, just like the loved one that was lost.
