Weeping Willow

Studio 30 The Prompt –  Weeping Willow.
I have adapted a piece I wrote some time back.

Run in-between the rain drops
shouting my name out loud
I turn my head
I feel a blush, I laugh

drops from clouded skies
touch my skin, my
trickle down my nose

chase me up the grassy knoll
dress soaked through
I care not

warming winds carry
your words closer
to my ears
“Rose ….wait”

follow me my love
to the top of the
hill where the
willows brush the earth

you love me…is that really
what I heard
spirits shan’t be dampened
hearing those three words

pursue me capture me
my body as my heart
remove my transparency
for I am yours

nothing else matters
not the rain, nor the wind

you love me, I want you under

the weeping willow branches

I am following the below.

b : the surface opening of an underground cavity

Step quietly as not to disturb the earth
keep voices hushed or they shall hear
don’t be frightened for they will sense
and keep us as their slaves

step quietly for they are real
tales of them I have been told with
beastly bodies hideous
that come out at night to scare

they will find us, they will
emerge gigantic in proportion
from the mouth of their underground
home; they will take us away

trolls with lumpy body bits
trolls with one large eye and
grotesque noses, tails hidden
I’m frightened so step lightly

keep your distance from the
opening; we should run and not
be here, the night in blackness
the trolls awake they are thieves

step lightly or run
