Under the Willow

under the willow

dapple your smile

fragrant grasses
cradle us

the wind
caressing the skin

declare our love

my heart sings
with your touch

  1. Such a lovely poem. What’s your writing process for something like this? Does it come out in a rush or do you edit a lot? Would be really interested to know.


    1. It varies a lot. I’ve found that if it comes out in a rush, even if I’m happy and excited about it, I step away from it for a while. If I do that, when I come back to it, I always find a way to improve on what I’ve done.
      Thank you for the lovely comment and for your visit! πŸ™‚
