Reminded Me - Of Life

by the mainstream of life
is the willow tree,
overhanging branches,
and cascading beams
of light.

As floods of souls walked by
the air filled with words
on occasion -
despair is heard.

Then all sound stops!

For a solitary tear -
smashed into the pavement
but no one hears
except the tender leaves
of the willow.....
frolicking in the wind.

Reach for me -
feel the silk
touch my cheek
let them all walk by
as I stand frozen
in that moment, which
stood alone in time
as a willow leaf -
touched me.

And reminded me -
of life.
