Weeping Willow

Like the weeping willow, I will bend to the earth. I will cry and I will ache into the wind.

Though you have betrayed me one thousand times and denied me thousands more, you cannot chop me down to the ground, head over ankles.

I am infinite rings around you.

I may bend, but you will not break me. Do not mistake my undoing for falling apart. Do not think my tears are weak, as water feeds me.

From this water, I will grow lush and leafy green, pigmented perfectly, season after season, while your parched heart withers as dust in the corners of your unseeing eyes.

Greetings Feline and Fellow Earthlings! In the interest in "brevity" I will attempt to summarize via lists. I AM, this is me, here we go, weee: writer, reader, lover of music, dance, theatre, animals, oddities, 2nd hand trolling through alleys and le boutigues of sally ann and value village, and the beautiful outdoorsy nature of my home. Big breath, leap #2: a veggie head, enviro eco freak, chocolateasaurus, transformer more than meets the eye, former ESL teacher, a happy auntie of Nicholas and Sam, my 2 sweetie pie nephews. Leap #3...welcome to me! Enough said, read my blog:)
