2013…Happy New Year – Sakura waits

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.
