flowering cherry blossom carpet

Blossom Free


Dried blossoms rustle…

shuffling through spring petals

creates a feeling of fall nostalgia.

Millions of pink colored bits

hold together to drift with passing cars.

Scattering under Corgi paws…

flowering cherry blossoms

need rain to macerate them.

Impatient neighbor roars over them;

sucked into the lawn mower bag,

he reclaims a clean sidewalk

free from Spring’s effluence.
