No Regrets

It is often difficult to look back at events in our lives without harboring a few regrets. I wrote the poem 'The Egret Tree' after coming across a tree I saw while boating with my husband that was literally covered with egrets. When the wind blew they all flew away. This gave me the inspiration to write this light and humorous poem about seeing regrets for what they are and ultimately letting go of those regrets that may linger.

No Regrets

I came across a tree today
that normally I wouldn't see
Upon this tree
were many egrets
some resting, some at play.

The Egret Tree

I got to thinking how nice
it would be to have a tree
on which to place regrets
that still may linger
and never think twice.....

No More Regrets

For when a hearty wind blew,
in an instant ~
they would be gone too.


Additional note -This is a first attempt for this writer at writing humorous poetry and while I do hope you have enjoyed reading it, I need to add that I have no regrets for writing it whatsoever ~ Maria Malone
