The Promise of the Cherry Blossoms


As I sense the menacing gaze of the winter ghoul

refusing to yield 

I walk against howling wind,

having seen the promise

of the cherry blossoms

so I walk now in the strength

and in the power of hope

that yes

there will be a spring


this year.

  1. Yes, for sure! Over here it has clearly arrived. We have had temps around the 70s and just today I enjoyed the many blossoming cherry trees… what a feeling!
