A Willow Born To Weep

landscape of willows spirit rises my sorrow- weeping by the creek chartreuse leaflets mourn for the loss of my daughter- branches crowd her tomb hope of trusting faith brings momentary healing- roots bud into loss grieving with the breeze- effortless heartache reveals willows born to weep March 25, 2017
