I have looked upon this tree for many years.
Over the last year I have observed it every day.
In the tree I see me.
 
Nine years ago she was a beautiful Willow Tree
with full branches of leaves touching the ground
as all good Willow Trees do.
 
She has seen many a storm over those years.
Many of which have broken her branches
while strong winds torne at her essence.
 
Her spirit now struggles with aging limbs
many of which no longer bare leaves.
Broken branches still reaching for the sun of day.
 
Still a beauty of Nature with now its broken dreams.
Days now counting swiftly till a strong storm
will finally crash her/me to the ground.
 
Ho Reaper of Life and Nature
treat me with a gentle hand
when I am to be cut down.
Remember once….I too
was a mighty tree.
