Poetry: Weeping Willows

Today's NaPoWriMo prompt was to write a hay(na)ku which is similar to a haiku with three lines, but it only has one word on the first line, two on the second, and three on the third. I decided to make a poem that comprises of multiple hay(na)ku poems and played around with the form on the page.
