among the willows

the sun was done listening
before they finished their long-winded story
for a moment they sat in silence
for the first time in a long time
hearing voices from among the willows
like a whisper,
or maybe a weep?
they’d lost touch with their feelings
ages ago, they could not tell
that it was a sound of their own souls
