A gripping write, offering much, but leaving more to the imagination.
A superb rendering.

I'm not into vampires, if that's what this is. But I do find your description quite compelling and worth reading for its mystery. Well done.

This is amazing to me since I have written a poem which is identical in theme. Well done, Donna. Love and best wishes,

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.

Hauntingly beautiful phrases that steal ones breath away. I was a bit sad, but yet enchanted by your words. These words will stay in my heart, nurtured by your talented pen. Just loved it!

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...

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.

very romantic-nicely done

This is a haunting and sadly sweet write. Here in Savannah, we have a statue on River Street called "The Waving Girl." I was placed there to honor the memory of a woman whose only love -a sailor, who sailed off and was lost at sea. She went to that spot where she waved goodby to him for the last time every day until she died and waived her handkerchief at every ship that entered the harbour. She never married or gave up hoping that she would one day see him return. To see a picture of it, you can go here: http://gosoutheast.about.com/od/photoswebcamspodcasts/ig/A-Glimpse-of-Savannah/Waving-Girl-Statue.htm

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.

I love this.

Powerfully penned, Donna; and a tale that's been occuring for many centuries.

As the Father in law of a Nova Scotia fisherman I can truly appreciate the bittersweet longing of the young lady who is the subject of this piece. You captured her longing, and unending love of the sailor who didn't return. I have done afew pieces on this same topic but yours is the best I have seen so far.Well done.

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 presentation...one 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.

A whimsical, gauzy write, Donna, that is ephemeral and mysterious. Well-done! Peace. Joyce
