I love the Weeping Willow. To me it has always been a tree that seems wise and comforting. On my morning walk, I pass a small Willow that has not yet grown to its full height.
At the moment, the tree stands naked on the side of a busy road. Even though the grass beneath it has started to green, buds have not yet started to show on this wizened-looking tree and cover it with its green beauty.
Despite its lack of buds, the tree has within it the promise of green and sanctuary.
The sunlight filters through its branches, warming the life within it. The tree’s awakening will be slow but, when it comes, it will be magnificent.
As I pass by the tree, I know that within a few weeks its beauty will begin to show as Spring takes hold of the land. I look forward to passing this tree covered in all its glory.
What do you love about the Weeping Willow?
