Trees Dancing

Tall slender delicate birches

Shake their lustrous leaves

Brandish branches

Restlessly

Willows toss defiant curls

Into a flurry of wispy green

Shower crystal raindrops

Carelessly

The cherry flutters verdant foliage

Trembling heart-shaped leaves

Along each branch

Hopelessly

The darkly noble bay tree

Dips its pungent leaves

Sways misshapen branches

Fatefully
