dVerse - It's Not Easy Being Green


Weeping Willow

laying my head upon my pillow
gazing out my bedroom window
a beautiful weeping willow
swaying to a gentle breeze
appears limber; so carefree
feet  planted firmly in the earth
 do not be deceived, nor naive
she has been tried throughout the years
cried a million liquid tears
long flowing branches offer shelter you see
 beckoning me to sit upon her feet
I softly  ask  why do you weep
a gentle whisper her reply
for a world lost in despair
 for the needy
the hopeless
 the hungry
the dreamless
the sick
 the lonely
 the brokenhearted
overcome with raw emotions
realization, rationalization
many souls need liberation
heart and mind take notations
 a magnificent tree
The Weeping Willow

  7. ...magnificent... i always wonder what the weeping willow is weeping for... they seemed to be full of mysteries... it's like when you're inside their greenery a whole new land/world opens before you where fauns & nymphs welcome you with ancient curiosity... i liked this a lot.. thanks for writing about a weeping willow...smiles...
