Willow tree

Poetry / Mystery

Chapter 1

It was a willow tree once there 
At the land of lake and mist, 
It was standing lonely on the shore 
Waiting for a beautiful hand to touch 
Its shining leaves. 
It was a woman in green, wrapped in 
A scarf with autumn leaves, 
Her hair was with honey color 
Her eyes were magnetizing and dark, 
She came to the willow on twilight " 
Rainy clouds gathered with above 
With gray shadows, 
She weeps under the tree and talks to it 
“Oh, willow, where is my beloved… 
since years he went to the land of 
pineapples and sun, 
and then he never returned.. 
I promised to wait him every night, 
And every day I light candles and pray.” 
The woman`s tears fall from her beautiful eyes, 
They touched the ground of the tree 
And dropped on its leaves… 
“Don`t cry, dear “ replied the willow, 
I`m here beside you, I hear and feel, 
I was also a maiden one day in life 
Waiting my beloved I came here to cry 
Near the lake and mist. 
Years passed by ,he never returned 
And my longing increased 
One day I just woke up and found 
My hands transformed into green leaves 
My body " to stem of a willow tree. 
God gave me peace , I`m still crying 
But I don’t wait for him. 
The woman in green was amazed 
She felt suddenly quite inside herself, 
She stood little with opened eyes 
Gazing the lake, then kissed the tree 
And turned away. 
The willow saw her smile, she never came 
Again to the mist and lake land, 
But her autumn leaves scarf is still there…Start writing here ...

belljean: Enjoyed the story . Could not wait to see what happen next. The plot was good and carried out in a smooth but exciting was. There were some missing words and some extra words. Spelling needed to be checked.

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

PaulSenkel: A real page-turner. The main character takes getting used to which retrospectively is a good thing. Harry evolves quite a lot and the more you read the more you appreciate his intelligence.The setting is special to say the least. Imagine you have enough money so that everybody can have all they ...

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

danijelstoilkovic: I really like this story. The characters, the mysteries, that bonding in the end, but I would really like to see what happened next. Is there a second part? And this would really be one cool horror movie and if I was the director, I wouldn't change a thing.It's awesome!

The contrast between rich and poor is very evident too.The storyline actually sheds a compelling light on why women in certain countries sell themselves just to help their families or even to survive themselves.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...
