Pink Clouds

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub - Haibun Monday - "Cherry Blossoms"
(posted by Frank J. Tassone)

The cherry tree buds look promising.  Blossoms force their way
into the world.  They brighten up the day like pink cotton candy.
I have walked through a archway of cherry blossoms, and felt
them enclosing me in warmth and delight.

There is a Chinese Scholar garden near to me, where you can
stroll in and out of stone porticos, watching koi, and delighting
in the bridge leading to a pagoda ringed by cherry trees.

     they live their lives
     bursting in pink petals
     cherry blossoms, short life

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.
