Latter summer fall and winter,

You stand ordinary.

Come spring, faithfully, you blossom.

And in pink attire, you beautify.

Inhaling slow and deep,

I capture your scent:

Admire your loveliness.

Your stature like a goddess.

Your limbs aloof.

Your silky petals sacred--too delicate to hold.

Placidly, you flirt.

Appeasing obliviously.

A savage rain,

A whirl of biting wind.

A fleeting existence toppled.

A bed of pink petals---

Blanket the verdant ground.

I lie down in your remnants.

Great description of spring. There is a wild cherry tree growing on the property next to mine. Each spring, I wait for that tree to bloom.

Beautiful verses by a beautiful author. Makes me want springtime to come to see that cherry tree outside my window blossum again and the birds sing their love songs again. Have to get through winter first though. Good write.

I love cherries,after reading the poem, like many of us we do not see our beauty, but then, something happens, and we blossom into God's gift of splendor, great to see this view.

Impressed, not so much with this piece
But the words, style and scent...
Pretty pen

You have written in such a way that I was able to see the rose petals, and smell them. This is a beautiful poem, and I love the imagery.
Stop by my den when you have a chance. I am new to this site.

Enjoyed this piece, especially the tension created between the literal and figurative. I have no idea if this was your intention but . . . "Your silky petals sacred - too delicate to hold" was a pivotal phrase in the piece for me personally. With this phrase you created a sensory illusion that you are not only embracing natures reemergence in the spring, and the unfathomable beauty that accompanies such, but also a vision of inexpressible love with another.

Dear Donna;

mercy me, the imagery in this is stunning! I am in the same mind as Michelle, this reminded me a great deal of japanese paintings and verse in its subject and of the better romance of nature works I have seen in quite a while.

A real beauty- made me think of the cherry blossom tree and the simplicity of asian art.
