Blossoms Fading

fallen petals

springtime passing by
now branches filling with leaves
blossom petals shed

I’m noticing the cherry blossoms, oh so recently bursting forth, starting to fall. It is one their beauties, their fragility, their temporary presence. Emergence to vanished is such a short window.

Cherry Blossoms

ah, cherry blossoms!
all the beauty of springtime

I try to walk every day. During those walks, I seek out signs of the seasons, of change, of life’s patterns. Lately, I’ve searched for signs of spring. Crocuses, daffodils, lilies, and now cherry blossoms.
