Weeping willows


Weeping willows 
shelter a pierced soul
while crusty earth soaks up feverish tears.

A brittle soul on the mend
still wears the unbearable loss
like a constraining sheath.

Every day gentle breezes 
charm up memories
that in turn explode,
rustling the sheath 
tearing up old wounds.
