Tree



red maple tree
with leaves fiery and shaped of tears,  
silently she mourns  

~0~0~

pine tree 
coated with ivory and midnight moon,  
restless is her sleep

~0~0~

cherry blooms 
on a parasol of forest green -
spring in her step

~0~0~

willow tree
bowing in a dance courtyard - 
boldly she leaps

  22. I love this image! Interesting how she starts out mourning as a maple and then she's dancing as a willow. Makes me ponder how we as humans can hold many emotions simultaneously; grief/joy/fear/courage.
    Enjoy your weekend Grace!
