Why I Love Cherry Blossoms

                                         -after a photo on a friend’s facebook page

You will always make me smile

bringing existence to everything
making life worthwhile

calming and blessing my being.

My remedy, the opposite of stress.

The blood of my youth!

                                          My rest,
my root
buds on every branch
beating my heart
with confidence

(Defy the Dark!)

through each and every season 
we wake to meet each other.

My voice of reason.
                                          I rediscover.

as dependable as day.

Yes, I am one of the lucky few.

                                          I will be ok.
