Plant Care

My giant

Weeping
Willow,

Please
Do not
Forget
To pull
The

Weeds
Around
Your
Base.

Please
Keep
Our

Trunk of
Secrets
Tightly

Behind
The old

Bark
Of your
Chest.

—-

You are
Forever

Reflected
Inside me.

My love

Hums

A One
Wind
Song

Beneath
Your shade.

—-

I can
Be the
Breeze

And

Pond

Enduring
Your
Leaves

When the

Weight of
Your vines

Becomes
Too heavy
For you

——Not to
——-Hang
——Down

Sprawled…
………Limp,

Over our
Open
Waters.

—-

I see

A life
Underneath

Curvature
Of your
Towering
Deciduous
Frame.

—-

True to
Form,

Our leaves
Alternate,

And spiral.

You are here

In my Every

Narrow, light,
And green.

—-

Forgive me,

For I Am
But Broad,

Finely
Serrated
Margins.

—-

Turn golden
In fall, and

Soak up
All our
Sunlight;

Facedown,

Into my
Mirror.
