Especially the blossom from the Japanese Sukura trees, simply awesome. I called it snow from the Tree's when the kids were young, James xxx

Now that is romantic. such a lovely time of the year. Hmm bit late for confetti though when the tree is already pregnant. It is a very delicate and pretty piece of writing. Thank you for your comment on "Embers" I do appreciate it. The poem was designed for a contest but it turned out too long. Its my first serious attempt at rhyming...... goodness that is hard.
