WILLOW'S WAY


Gold gushes from a thousand willow stems,
Cascading down granite skies,
Evaporating into light.

Lovely! I've been thinking about how so many of the leaves this time of year have a yellow hue. You're right: one deciduous waterfall.

Hi Emily -- Thanks for the comment. Yes, everything pops with color in early spring -- that "spring green" with, as you point out, a yellowish note.
I'd never noticed a willow with such color before. I think it was the effect of a nearly setting sun shining on those wonderful drooping branches -- all seen against the cold gray of a stormy sky.
Love your recent post about place (and MN's not a bad one to call home, right?)
