It’s that time again, the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC. The blooming trees and flowering plants are forthcoming now that the winter has finally dozed off. How can you not adore these beautiful blossoms? The colors, light and pure awesomeness of them make them a special treat for photographers, flower lovers and, of course, romance.

“I went down to mingle my breath with the breath of the cherry blossoms.
There were photographers:
Mothers arranging their children against gnarled old trees;
a couple, hugging, asks a passerby to snap them like that,
so that their love will always be caught between two friendships:
ours & the friendship of the cherry trees.
why can’t my poems be as beautiful?
A young woman in a fur-trimmed coat sets a card table
with linens, candles,
a picnic basket & wine.
A father tips a boy’s wheelchair back
so he can gaze up at a branched heaven
All around us
the blossoms flurry down whispering,
Be patient you have an ancient beauty.
Be patient,you have an ancient beauty.”
