Weeping Willow


It rolled down the corner of an eye

Sat quivering upon a rounded cheek

Glistening and glittering like a diamond in the rough

***

It bore witness to a heartfelt emotional high

Potent with power, yet in appearance meek

Shimmering and luminous…an anathema for the “tough”

***

Is it just a nostalgic why, or more of a warrior’s sigh?

A mere weapon for the “weak”?

Or is it a privilege to feel enough to cry?
