Yes, our lives and landscapes can be changed in just one moment. This will speak to many who have lost either...and really when you think of it, it is a timely poem as well...with the landscape forever changed in the south.

Thomas, the flow of sadness sways with the willow branches. Yet as I read the poem, it is so intensely personal that it appears written to soothe a memory that might still be too new, yet needs to be kept.

so powerful and emotional - I've been here before, my love of certain trees and the memories of the dearest times with people, later marked by the loss. Beautiful work. My Martha's Tree on here might speak to you too, it's in my library or my archives section.

A tree from memory that cries emotion to a lonely heart. So sad. May your tears nourish a broken soul and the salt cleanse the wound. Thanks for sharing.

nostalgia stirred with emotional memories make for good poetry. The message I take from this is, love like the tree is a renewable resource yet both remain carved forever in our mind.
