Almond Tree



The sound of the wind through the leaves

Sweet fragrance the scent of the evening

A pink petal caresses the air

Shimmers in the shades coldness

Blossom of winter wonderful and free

Intense the presence of your anointing

Precious gift adorned with splendour

For you remain faithful to your promise.

    What a beautiful reflective poem, Alan. I have never smelled the fragrance of an almond tree, but you have taken me right there and then much deeper into the promise fulfilled!

    You use beautiful imagery at the beginning of your poem, Alan. I like the progression too, how you go from the images to the promise and its fulfillment.
