Am I Willow?



seamless 
naked
light

passing
underground

sights
overturn
sounds
depart

somatic
malfunctions
tether
souls

entice
illusions

and questions

is my sylph an Ariel
on gossamer cloud wings

or

am I a Willow
needing the earth
to weep



NOTE
Ariel - chief sylph in Alexander Pope's Rape of the Lock + character in Shakespeare's The Tempest
Willow - sylph bride to Ben Holiday in Terry Brooks' fantasy series Magic Kingdom of Landover

Gemma, first I was so happy to see you posting in the pantry - then I saw the STUNNING image which is just so beautiful - and then your poem: "or am I a willow, needing the earth to weep?" Wow, kiddo. Stunning work.
