Willow II


Riparian-Willow-Reflection-487611A clearing surrounded by a stand

of trees.  Short grass glade

save the centered solitary willow. Crowned


head draped

in majestic arraignment.

A reflection of the humbleness

of prayer before benediction. And

the solitude


of guilt. Not twisted


dogwood for a sacrifice.

Not oak strong to stand alone. Stretching


toward heaven from root to trunk to bough,

but bowing to earth in search

of transcension.

From root sprouts

new growth,


to form a forest of its own.
