Wow, these last two poems of yours are a deviation from the norm for you! I like it! Just proves a good poet can write in any style! I grew up in New Jersey and we had many weeping willows in our yard. I pictured them as I read your words. Lydi**

dear Christine... A young girl's tresses are similar to
a young weeping willow... and as time goes by she
may be playful in a more delicate sway to the music
of her heart. Your Haiku is like a flute that whistles by day.

So nicely done. As you know - I seldom take the time to really think about my manner of writing, so I appreciate it when someone does.

Take care - Dave

Hmmm...
This is wonderful.
I like the shortness with its contents.
They are mind-driving.

Thumbs up.
