    Whether a factual symbolism or not, your haiku was so nice that it
    should be true!

      The Chinese bring willow branches indoors, which represent the coming of prosperity.They are decorated for lunar new year with the colors of gold and red ( prosperity and happiness) They must look so lovely!

    Lovely. Reminds me of a children’s song… In haiku:

    pussywillow
    sleep my silky friend
    spring is far away

    As depicted by children’s book illustrator.
