‘Weeping Willow’ – July 13, 2015

Wind and willow

Wind and willow

dishevelled foliage flying
the weeping willow

the weeping willow
faces the raging wind

bending but not breaking
the willow resists

the willow resists
first drops of rain – fall
weeping in the wind

  1. I couldn’t possibly pass up a title with Weeping Willow – and it is refreshing to see and find another lovely piece – so stalwart like the willow, yet easy and flexible – therein lies the secrets – wonderful!


    • Thanks ever so much MJ .. I love the willow trees and the other evening had a beautiful crop of photos of the willows being thrashed about by the wind that came off Lake Garda. Glad you enjoyed the post!

  2. I think the last haiku is especially wonderful – is there a person present? If so, does that person weep? Fall? Resist? Ah the mysteries of haiku! 🙂
