Jisei for a Willow – Tanka/Jisei – September 26, 2015

fallen willow

fallen – sweet willow
felled by impetuous winds
September tempest
her sisters weep on the shore
and I write her jisei

tall subtle willow
protected young and old
fell – angry winds

This was is what remains of the largest willow in the lake front parks at Riva Del Garda.  I rarely could photograph her … she was just way too big – she often was just a few leaves filling in the space around her sister willow.
