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 ...

mcase: I really enjoyed this story. Felt drawn to Cami as a genuine person. Great characters with funny honest perspective. Many subplots made this continually interesting. I was never bored and thought the overall plot was intriguing. I do wish that some elements had been excluded, such as some extrane...

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!

tsolaidowu: I want a continuation dammit....I loved this book and the 1st one. I can't believe this is it. I'm not ready to say goodbye to Jeff and Lorie; and the gang. Great book and storyline. You're a genius Madelyn.

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

CornflowerBlues: I'm liking everything about this story so far: the brazen detective, the way he gave in to temptation, the temptation (<3!!), and the unexpectedly complex backdrop of his job and the case he's working. The story is well written, and despite its erotica tag, has an intriguing detective story and a...

nikole carr: After starting and stopping several books tonight, this book caught my attention from the very beginning and i stayed up until 6 a.m. to finish reading. The plot has many twists and the sexual scenes keep it interesting, too. im a florida native so the Caribbean location is fun to read about. th...

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...

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.

mcase: I thoroughly enjoyed every particle of this interesting story!! I really enjoyed the development of the main characters and loved them despite their flaws.

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...

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. You had me fooled until the end. The rest of this review will contain spoilers fo...
