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 ...

Maryam Rehman: The story was overall amazingly penned down. I loved how the story transitioned from the lavish city of London to the war torn Aleppo. Even though the story had some loopholes in some places, it made me contemplate failing in chemistry, because I was up all night glued to my mobile screen rather ...

JanThompson: This book gives a beautiful description of a country which one rarely gets to see. 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.

Darren Powell: Very nice read. Lots of surprising treats from: Schrodinger’s cat and dervish dance forms; to sensei masters and brownian motion. I wasn't expecting this, so it was a pleasant discovery.Also liked the 'cross-over' events connecting one character's/or group's journey to another. I like how that wa...

Jan Imonti: Loved the story, but didn't like the delivery...had to read this on my computer on line. Wasn't able to download it to my kindle. Excellent story, lots of twists and turns. Fairly quick read. Love the versitility of Mitchell's writing. Keep up with the great mysteries.

M. Drewery: I did think I would be reading just another Atlantis archaeological adventure story when I came across this book. However I think it's fresh and very different to other approaches to the same historical mystery. The first chapter drew me in brilliantly. I'm not great at spotting technical writing...

JaiCee Rosewood: Once I started reading this, I was unable to stop. The story was well written and kept me enthralled the entire time. Finn's family reminds me of mine and I loved it. Two thumbs up and a 10/10. I'm looking forward to the next book and am hoping it's about Chris

C J Lawson: Nicely done. Good story with good characters, as well. I was very entertained by the story line, from beginning to end. I would definitely read more of this author's work.

Jordan Young: *ALERT FOR POSSIBLE SPOILERS* Where to start? I don't know how to sum up this review, this story was absolutely sensational. Brilliant. Flawless. I loved every single bit of this story, it is truly amazing. I read this story in fifteen hours, it is magnificent. I loved everything about it, the p...

Deleted User: As a teacher/scholar of British literature, there's nothing I like more than a well-informed tale of historical fiction, particularly one dealing with the murky events around Elizabethan England. Black Dog is full of gritty, well-chosen details that make the period come to life, and a plot that ...
