short willow poems

I realized I’ve written several poems for willows.  Thought I’d create a small collection, with some holiday pictures from antiqueclipart.com.

Hope you enjoy, Ellen

willows weep and yet
how strong the branches
that hold their tears

weeping willows
reach towards ground
humility

christmas-lily-of-valley

old weeping willow
growing so strong
prayer turns tears to joy

growing to heaven
reaching to sunrise
weeping willow tree

holly-bloomsold and new
memories
grow together now
weeping willow trees
in Spring

And a winter poem:

after
the
storm
willow
branches
covered
with snow

as if a Painter
painted each branch
with one brush
