The Weeping Willow


by Amy Schile

I stood among the weeping branches of the willow tree
Her leaves caressed my bare back
And Embraced me as if she were Mother Earth herself
Mother to mother, no words needed to be exchanged
Here I wept

I sat at the foot of the weeping willow tree
My dreadlocks my roots and my branches
She showed me beauty
Rustling in the gentle, early summer breeze
Here I wept
