Taking a Bough

Lone weeping willow
  Leaves the beholder minding
    Nature's tears of mirth

    I love the pun in the title, and I am full of admiration for the idea of turning the notion of weeping into merriment. Such economy of words to create a whole story. Well done John, and good luck in the competition.
