Willow Woman, Where Art Thou?

A Poem by Kendra Yvette

I want to be the woman

beneath the weeping willow tree

barefoot, blithe, and blissful

who sways with the drapes of leaves in the breeze,

I want to be the woman

whose long tresses of coils

bounce in sync to her waltz with the wind

and flows in rhythm to her frolic

I want to be the woman

who moves to the heartbeat

of the flowing river

and makes the sands of the earth

bend to the will of her soles

I want to be the woman

whose beautiful face is marked with serenity

ethereal and graceful are her movements of jubilee

as she meditates and prays to her goddess

guided by the beacon of the full moon

She’s arcane in nature

only a bit out of reach

to adopt her present,

I must honor her in mine

So, for now, I’ll be the woman

who sways beneath the ash tree

with mulch and street beneath my feet

guided by the beacon of the waxing crescent

    I love the traditional depictions of femininity - in touch with nature, dancing gracefully, being beautiful. I also love Willow trees, they're so mysterious and bittersweet.
