winter-tree-s-3memories can be so bittersweet

they haunt

and tease

like wind through winter branches

catching on the last remaining leaves

pulling us this way and that

making us remember

what’s better forgotten

dreams and nightmares

lost loves, deaths, shattered friendships,

oh memory, why are you so cruel?

About Evie Garone

I am an outspoken woman with independent views of the world. I am spiritual but also realistic. I've successfully raised two men who I've sent off to college and am now following my love of the arts, including painting, drawing and writing. Thus, two blogs, two books I sporadically work on, voracious reading, among other loves keep me busy.
