Cherry Blossom in Spring

 Under a Yoshino Cherry tree I sit in the park
Waiting for the first sign of spring
For a touch of pink to burst forth from a gnarled winter
For a glimpse of Crabapple, Dogwood, Cherry and Magnolia perfection

She arrives in a cloak of blossom buds
Blinding me with her intensity...

Her bravado...

Her light.

For she leaves nothing to the imagination
Dressed to thrill

Dressed to kill, every hint of green
As she takes over in her gentle, delicate ways.

I am consumed by her beauty
Mesmerised by her audacity

Enamoured by her lusciousness
And speechless at her structure

She is alluring
Beckoning me beneath

Laying down her petal carpet
Inviting me to rest soporifically on her pink eiderdown

I am shrouded in her hues of love...
Hot, Light, Deep, Baby

Champagne, Tickle Me, China

Tango, New York, Mountbatten

and Cherry blossom...

  1. Wow ..Lovely Cherry blossom. Your photographs are beautifully captured. I remember a year or so i visited such Pear blossom garden, here is that link :

    I agree with you....mostly we take beautiful memories with us from such places which we can cherish all the time :)

  6. I needed to say "wow" too! A profusion of perfumed pink beautifully captured. Love it. Love you!

  7. Sakura! Beautiful scenes and beautiful photos of them.
    I've been to Japan several times (my wife is Japanese) and that country explodes with Cherry blossoms and festivals commemorating their appearance each year. One of her aunts has a tree that sprouts blossoms of three different colors.
