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,

                        content

to form a forest of its own.
