Willow

Standard

rooted in the ground
it spreads wide and long
withdrawn from the eye below
seeking moisture around
above leaves face sunlight
growing within view
shading one so close
each year a new ring
expansive in its build
casting a presence
ancient with wisdom
through vast weather
adapting through change
flowing with air
standing through extremes
awed by its abilities
from just a tiny seed.

-Jennie Nawrocki
