I lean my head against the weeping willow tree.
A million glowing pinpoints dot the breathless evening sky.
The nostalgic scent of fresh-cut grass sweeps away my grief.
Contemplative, almost brooding, I gaze upon the twilight moon.

I rest my head against the weeping willow tree.
A million dancing thoughts race about my lucid mind.
I think of all the friends I have made and those I've left behind.
I reflect upon my family especially those no longer here.

I fall asleep against the weeping willow tree.
A million complex fleeting dreams ebb and flow against my soul.
I'm a soldier fighting in an ancient war, a survivor running for his life.
I'm any number of imagined things, I'm a father, son and brother.

I wake against the weeping willow tree.
A million flecks of nascent sleep speck my field of view.
The nostalgic scent of honeysuckle brings me great relief.
Contemplative, almost brooding, I shield my eyes against the rising sun.

I'm humbled. I have quite a few more that I plan to share, I just didn't want to spam the board so I figured I'd give it a while.

That's great my friend. I have always thought of myself as a willow tree and that will be my next tattoo. I think of myself as that because I am so strong, I may bend all the way down to the ground but I will not break. I love the free verse. Lovely.
