Two Willows Bend

Two willows bend
to the earth trying,
so desperately,
to find
Common ground.

The willows are flexible but,
the frozen ground is brittle.
What is brittle
is easily broken.

Better that the willows stand tall
Apart
and survive to be warmed
by the rays of spring.

Tearing open the
Heart,
Must it be so excruciating?

Cracking open an egg to make a cake,
Yes, the shell is destroyed.
the Essence transformed into a form
that delights the senses.
But, try to explain that one
To the hen!
