In this urban free verse poetry, “Little Giggles of Yesterday.”
I’m changing it up today with a meditative, thriller poetry, I’m trying to be a little versatile. A woman is out for a nature walk, when she comes upon an old oak tree in the middle of an open field, she takes rest there…when she is overcome with a heartbreaking emotion, the breeze speaks to her of little giggles and children. Hope you enjoy the digital art piece with double exposure and this little urban free verse poetry.
Urban Free Verse Poetry: Little Giggles of Yesterday
Like leaves rustling in a breeze
I could hear them.
A heaviness in my heart:
my first feeling of their presence standing
under an old oak tree.
It feels broken-hearted. Strained under emotion.
(Strained and not a leaf.)
Little giggles of yesterday, ones you want back.
My sincere hearted compassion is acute
to its sadness: like a mare (female horse) standing
over a dead foal.
How I’ve come to hear voices from a grave?
Little whispers in the swaying branches
bearing leaves, I feel your childlike song,
like soft wisps of air.
Is there a story in your silence?
Fatal touches crawl across my cheeks.
I can hear you, yet you’re not there.
This tree holds your answers.
Today, the sky is gray, shrouded
clouds hold tears, beckoning
the outcry of injustice.
The once life of two now lies beneath my feet;
Roots keep your secrets. Somewhere in history,
you both existed.
These answers I seek. Who are You?
