A Willow Tree

a woman reborn

in a love song

i was diamonds scattered

underfoot

i was smoldering ash

reduced to rage

and sorrow.

a glimmer

a spark

across the landscape

you saw me.

i look up

palms out

here i am.

you gently undress me

the layers

of shame

of pain

your broken fingers healed

my face upturned

to the celestial air you exhale

there is sacred restoration

in your hands

your lovely hands.
