The Willow Story

And so the souls of 
Hong Shee and Chang
came together
in breathless anticipation 

and under the incandescent moon
escape by boat
The darkened clouds roll in heavily and 
The angry sea comes roaring down
Waves rush in and wash over them 
Spinning, churning, and tossing the tiny boat 
As the star –crossed lovers drown in the stormy sea
Bodies bound tightly together 
Tangled by those ghost fish nets 
While floating in flotsam in the calm blue sea
Their souls now transformed into immortal doves
To live together - forever free.
