Cherry Blossoms

Cherry Blossoms
Small, white, fragile
on a branch, on a tree
on a street, in a town
Cherry blossoms

Soft as softest silk
fragrance of a thousand lilies
I drink their ambrosia passing by
Cherry blossoms

Swaying, solitary silence
Awaiting metamorphosis
into shiny fruit
dancing in pairs
Swaying with the winds playful harmony
Cheery cherry blossoms
