Trees Laugh Along With Winds..

Written for ONE SINGLE IMPRESSION: Vellicate

A new word for me ..thanks to The Odd Inkwell for the prompt.. I have taken the meaning that denotes 'causing irritation or uneasiness...'

Trees Laugh Along With Winds…

Winds vellicate, trees
React spontaneously
And shed dry leaves

And shed dry leaves
What else, frustration targets
Genuine victims..

Genuine victims, dance
Around gravity and fall
Trees laugh along with winds

Trees laugh along with winds
Enjoying the spectacle
A human trait, this!


Here's an attempt with another meaning..

Mom's gesture of a
touch vellicates, child laughs in

- RS

  2. Very beautiful flow of words Ramesh...:)

    I like how you expressed it...:)and it seems like a loop poem...I know it is..:)

    Me, I tried hard to work on it, but seems not good enough, I guess I misinterpreted it!

    Thanks for your encouraging comments Ramesh!
