She stands in the middle of the open field, the wheat grass blows gently in the warm summer breeze.
The stalks of grass graze her fingertips as she walks silently in the night towards the giant weeping willow tree. The warm breeze blows gently
through her auburn hair. The willow branches dance and play in the wind flashing their shiny leaves in the full moon's light like a little school of
silverfish in the ocean.
She sits, leaning against the giant willow. A sigh as no other wracks through her as if the tree itself were sighing with her.

As the storm starts to roll on she sits huddled against the tree....so small....so helpless....so lifeless... The fog rolls in and eventually
envelopes her and she sits Weeping.
The willow, strong, serene, it's branches not moving....weeps with her.
