Contorted willow- wonders

Sitting in my "Zen Corner" 
(the little bench behind the tree, where I can catch the last bit of sun in my garden... 
with my back against the sun-heated stone wall...)
I wonder about how the growing branches decide
 if they go up
or down
or left
or right

Maybe the sun makes it happy
and the young shoots go up?
And feels down on a rainy day?

Or is it the other way around?
So happy when it rains, that it sticks its 'head' up, 
licking the raindrops
with its tender young leaves?

What about the sideways twirl?
Does the branch make a turn to the right
when I come out of the back door?
and left when I am sitting on my 
zen-corner- bench?

I wonder...

...always love to read your thoughts and commets here! X Corina
