Willows Dance

The willows dance and sway
upon the springtime breeze
awaking to a memory
of seasons passing

Content to know
just this
they grow again
for energy is on the rise
in springtime tides
of earth and air and sky

Their roots sink deep
into the earth
drawing moisture
from the source
of every nourishment
speaking in the movement
of their limbs

and the ripples in the pond repeat
to answer in the soothing sound
of small waves coming all around
while a gentle melody replete
with wisdom's lore

is carried by the wind
and through the door
of yet another day
unfolding in repose
beneath a gentle willow tree
