Tthe Tamarac Tree......a poem?

Updated on December 4, 2013

The woods today are magical
Is this light falling snow
merely white dust
from the attic of time
Sitting here beneath the tamaracs
a soft wind blows
silent

I come here often just for the peace
the salvation of
solitude
Contemplating and moody
I need this place
Wistful and wishful
my mood often consumes me
and on good days
I dream

Today though a surprise as
I stir restlessly and walk
among the tamarack limbs
a wind rises unexpectedly
I look up and think
what's that noise?

And like a soft serenade the minute needles
of the yellowed trees begin
to fall around me
or float really drifting slightly
heavier than the snow
as if competing
for silence

The tamaracs the only needled
tree that loses it's needles in
autumn
No one else like them
somewhat like me
perhaps I will stay here
forever

      Thank you for taking me to this magical place. Enjoyed. The first pic is of our large pine which loses its needles in the winter and grows them in the spring.Now I know it's called a Tamarac. Thank you Ed.

      I don't know those trees, but they sound interesting and I love your poem of peace in that place. Peace and may God bless you.

      Wow, our Tamarac trees rain down so much pollen that you cannot sit under them. They are an introduced species out west here and are a menace.

      But somehow I got over all that and really enjoyed this piece. Thanks
