soul mates

During warmer times it is less beautiful and much more of a job---


That old willow tree of mine


I pick up its branches that have fallen and prune it all around


I admire its color---lighter green than the other trees---and its stateliness, and verdant cascading  boughs, and I find that I love it


And to think that I treasure it most in the cold of winter


When I think the world less beautiful and more austere


It would seem so weird that I see it as if for the first time in winter


This flowing tree that I trimmed in the fall


All even above the ground


Now it wears angel wings


And looks like some royal beauty decked in unearthly vestments of white feathered splendor 1 comment


It stands immense to me, like some mountain peak filling the landscape around it
  
It echoes wordlessly of its splendor, yet shouts in awe and magnificence, “I am here!  I am beautiful!  Look at me!”


Yes, you sing to me, “Winter’s not so bad."


Thanks for bringing joy to me
