Favorite Quote:
“That is happiness: to be dissolved into something complete and great.” -Willa Sibert Cather

you, standing so free
willow tree swaying, shading
how I wish I was

ancient limbs, arching
willow tree, stretching, weeping
how I wish to be

surrounded by breeze
O, you lucky willow tree
may I become thee?

The author's comments:
Willow trees remind me of my mother and she is a wonderful woman.
