Love Poem, With Willows
Give me a place to settle. To sit.
To hear the wind rustle the willow branches.
To hear the creek sing its lullaby..
A place to feel you next to me.
Quiet and soft, far gentler than your reputation.
I speak. You listen. You listen some more,
even when I am uncertain what I am saying,
or why. My thoughts in disarray. You know
you are not there for the fixing,
just the hearing
as I fix myself.
About this poem.
Could be a spiritual poem. Could be a poem about friends or lovers.
Mostly, when we are struggling, we know what we need to do. It’s the doing that is hard.
