Reflection of a cherry blossom tree

Reflection of a cherry blossom tree, mirrored upon a calm river by pale moonlight. Its fragile buds falling with the light breeze, float away with the flow of tributaries. Just like memories that slowly slip away, time ticks calmly counting down the days. Innocently it stands with serene beauty as lovers gather to admire its peaceful nature. Many beloveds have shared a passionate kiss, while intoxicated by its seductive aroma. From Vietnam to Japan, to the shores across the pond, many a love story has began under fragile pink blossoms. Oh my beloved, how I long to embrace you beneath its glory, so our love story can be forever cherished. Under pale moonlight that glistens for you our lips will delicately touch for the first time. Cherry blossom buds shower our heads, as they shelter our love.

I've never been to Japan, S O, but I have seen the cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C. It's a scene that will never, I earnestly hope, disappear from my memory. A beautiful, serene piece.

I have been very fortunate to have been to the Cherry Blossom Festival in Japan twice Si, and from the way you describe it with such wonderful imagery, you must surely have been there too? Or your Soul has. Romance is alive and well under those blossoming trees. Everything you describe in this gem of a poem is there. Many a love story has begun there. Brilliant as always and of course it has to be a fave. My second home -Japan...Maria

Your poem is vibrant like the flowers it depicts, Silent One..a lovely romantic painted an environment just right for the onset of love and romance. The picture you posted has intense color compared to the white/pink colors we have by the Washington DC water-basin...the trees, a gift from Japan.
