2013…Happy New Year – Sakura waits


sakura (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The small cherry tree

stands bravely in the cold. Bare

and gnarled, branches spread


lifting to heaven

its prayer of hope and coming

spring.  I stopped and stood


gently touching the

cold wood.  Buds were forming

waiting to burst out


in their ordained time.

I wait for their brief beauty

as I would wait


for the hello kiss

of a lover, the smile of a

child, the embrace of


a friend.  There is no

doubt in this waiting.  There is

no unbelief it


will come.  Winter blue sky

above us.  The tree waits and

holds its faith in spring.
