Bring the Blossom

The doves were here again today. They have visited the fig tree about five times now. And the cherry trees have started to snow. Their petals are like pages, where poetry goes.

March 21, 2020. Afternoon.

Bring the Blossom

As a child knows to scratch the ground

just where the earth most needs it,

love brings the blossom down

to please it —


bring the blossom,

my vow is not to seize it.
