The shushing of the Aspen

Soft flickering leafy sea

Memories of my childhood

When even the Trees

Whispered Shush Shush

Shimmering in a lullaby

Especially for  me.

    You took me home to the Rockies with this one Bear. Aspen are great music.


  2. My first college room-mate’s mother so loved and missed Aspen so much that her mother sent her small branches in those large popcorn tins. She placed them around our room. It was one of her ‘better’ decorating moves. Quite lovely.

    I love the feeling of this poem. There is so much here, but I especially like the line “shimmering in a lullaby.” What lovely and comforting image!

    That is a sweet memory. I like to hear the rain.
