Ode to a Cherry Tree

Pregnant buds on a barren tree
Explode 
Into a pale pink cloud
The delicate scent whispers in the 
Chill spring air
And then
Pinpricks of green
Amongst the rosy blossoms
Bright, vibrant, 
The electric colour of
Rebirth, new life
Look below,
Littered on the ground
Like a bridal procession
Recently triumphed past
A collage of discarded petals
As they plummet they are
Quickly replaced with 
The more resilient leaves
Of Spring’s awakening.
This moment, so perfect
When all converge in one
And she wears her 
Many faceted cloak.
Resplendent, luxurious
Is there anything more
Sublime
Than a cherry tree
In April?
