cherry petals

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1652 Cherry Petals (modern kigo)
“Today I saw the cherry petals fall from the Sakura in my backyard and that brought me the idea to give you a modern kigo related to that event … cherry petals.”

a long journey
some cherry petals
begin to fall

garden waterfall
cherry petals float to earth
in the sound

spring breeze
rustles through the cherry trees
it seems to be snowing

Here is my attempt:

power of Spring wind
gusts through heavy limbs of trees
sets sail, cherry petals

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
