via Daily Prompt: Agile


Like the branches of a willow tree
She moves with grace and ease
Her agile stride compliments
Any soft and gentle breeze.

So delicate and tender
She moves with style and grace
She stands alone on her own
Immune from time and space.

Remarkable and flexible
Bending with the wind
Never harshly responding
To the​ demands of anything.

She knows what’s important
What to address or leave alone
She will walk or turn away
Her reaction sets the tone.

She won’t give credence
To the whining or the scorn
She has little patience
For the weak or the forlorn.

You can learn a lesson
From her ability to bend
Go with the flow, be limber
Don’t be brittle, learn to blend.
