tiny parachutes free-falling in the wind... pink stars at sundown

    Carrie, you took the ancient cherry blossom haiku theme, and added your own twist to it, instead of falling into cloned redundancy. Thank goodness for that -- wot an enjoyable haiku read for me. I like your juxtaposition: you accentuate the blossom imagery of the first two lines with it, and add the sundown element, as opposed to creating a super-wide juxt that sort of pulls in a random piece of imagery under the guise of "creating a wider picture"(as in, the first two lines of a haiku describe a squirrel eating a walnut in the grass, and the juxt of the 3rd line is: "chimney" -- wot!? Ha ha!).
