Silky Like A Leaf

Silky Like A Leaf

I am silky like a leaf in the branch,
And like a leaf I have a meaning,
But it’s ignored by accusing me
of being exaggerative and weak.
But is it really me to blame
When the human eyes
Don’t see the tree?

About Yelling Rosa

I am retired. In my spare time I read, write, play the guitar and hike. I have published three verse books in Finnish and recorded my songs. You can listen to them on YouTube. I have translated some of my poems on Yelling Rosa's Weblog. I also like to watch movies. Olen kiinnostunut lukemisesta, kirjoittamisesta, kitaransoitosta ja luonnossa vaeltamisesta. Olen julkaissut kolme runokirjaa ja laulujani on äänitteillä. Voit lukea runojani Yelling Rosan kotisivuilta ja kuunnella laulujani YouTubessa. Olen elokuvafriikki.

    Remember the old saying, “He/she can’t see the forest for the trees.”? Yours sounds like a case of case of “can’t see the tree for the forest.” 🙂

    Your poem beautifully subtle, and your music blended in and caressed your words. Especially liked your finale.
    “When the human eyes
    Don’t see the tree?”


  9. I may have to try to play some of your music on the piano!

    Wonderful post YR, the music and lyrics is something special. “But is it really me to blame, When the human eyes, Don’t see the tree?” A true poet and artist you are. Cheers to a good week ahead.
