Cherry Blossoms

  




side by side
with a good friend -
watching cherry blossoms






all are flowers
from the same tree -
peace on earth !

They are so, so beautiful, the cherry blossoms!

Pink is my favorite color; your photographs are an ambrosial feast for the eyes! We lived just outside of Washington D.C. for a number of years and Cherry Blossom Time was one of the best things about living in the area. I have such lovely memories of walking through acres and acres of delicate, exquisite beauty with my two entranced little girls. The one photograph of the dark pink and white blossoms reminds me of those little girls, who are young women now.



We have always said that they are Snow White and Rose Red; one blonde and blue-eyed like my Scandinavian ancestors, the other with the dark hair, olive skin and black eyes of her father’s Cherokee blood. I am going to send the link to my daughters, I know they will see the same thing in those two flowers. I also know that they will appreciate your words of peace.

Dear Gabi,

Nice haiku.

You've got me chomping at the bit to get to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's Sakura Matsuri this coming weekend!
