Cherry-Blossom Path — A Poem

Cherry blossom path - large 2.jpg

“Cherry Blossom Path” — C.Birde, 5/17


Much is written

of rose-strewn paths;

but I prefer to

tread —

lightly, bare of foot —

the petals

dashed to ground

by recent rain

of the leaning cherry —

still pink,

still damp,

still fragrant.

A blushing robe


while nearby,

tucked in switch and


the catbirds’ songs

weave and flutter like

scattered, honeyed


— C.Birde, 5/17
