Poetry

Sakura

From the moment of first bloom
lost love is ignited
in bursts of pink and magenta
flower of contemplation
falling in a gossamer stream
each petal tinged with a memory
for those who came before
hold a five-sided promise 
while Maiko wave branches
tipped with fleeting glory
it is the time of Hanami
where temporal beauty grows 
thin as paper
song and companionship 
are the colours of spring
honour takes root beneath trees
that echo the old proverb
whoever finds a three-sided cherry blossom will always have love in their lives
