Cherry Blossom

Diving into its soft snowflake petals

Clouds of spring beauty into which to delve

Glorious displays of blancmange aplenty

Taking each space that might be empty

Filling our hearts with tenderness and calm

A soft, light cushion protecting from harm

A stunning bursting glorious energy

Marks the peak of this season with a sensory . . .

Explosion for the windows to the soul

Absorbing its depth and making us whole

Overpowering all that is dark

Revelling in the gentleness, contrast stark

Stop and enjoy the stillness and calm

Of what the earth offers as healing balm
