Willow Tree Men; a poem

We fall in love with these boys.

How could we not fall in love with these broad backed boys?

How do we love broad backed boys who turn into tree men.

These tree men that let their branches beg the ground for something

but their backs were straight

Straight tree trunk pride makes their backs strong.

These willow tree men love their soil.

These willow tree men love their wind and women.

These stoic tree men that thank the dirt for it’s place to stay.

How could we not love our willow tree men?
