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 ...

M.L. Bull: Hello, Aalia!Your story compelled the emotional pain and struggle of a teenage girl very well.. The imagery was also convincing and well-written, showing the different personalities of your characters and their actions.

Justin P Wade: I have read only Ch.1 so far, a very cinematic piece the writing flows well and the 'show' rather than 'tell' used well, a lyric of images I think. It is engaging and I would be keen to continue reading. I get a 1950s U.S.A feel from both the prose and the setting.

Ashley Stryker: So I'm writing this review, keeping in mind that this is a work in progress and it's part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), so my "deeper" critiques will be saved until it's all finished up.+ Chapter One: A stewardess would not talk to anyone quite like that, particularly a clear minor...

Someone: This was a fun, entertaining read. Although the novel wasn’t stylistically polished, and although the first couple of chapters struggled to hold my attention, the rest of the novel was engaging and beautifully done.

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Jacquie Walker: This is one of the best books I have had the pleasure to read. Claudio has created a very "real" world brought alive as his words paint a rich tapestry of the lives of his characters and the world they live in as they journey toward their destiny.I recommend this to all who love this genre.... it...

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!
