NaPoWriMo4 – Mono aware 物の哀れ

Prompt for NaPoWriMo is love – in love or lost love or breaking up.


Cherry blossom petals
floated onto his open
hands reminding him of all
he had thrown away.

Warm spring sun stood at
zenith in an azure sky,
pink against blue – cherry blossoms
wept tears on his cheeks.

    As the cherry blossoms fall
    I begin to understand
    The cost of her loss

    A bird’s eye-view of an evocative moment. ❤ ❤ ❤ Quiet, light, yet heavy with feeling.

    Your words are always a beautiful mix of Romanticism and zen, blending my favourite aesthetics of East and West. If only we could just share a pitcher of cool iced-tea…

    Yes my friend, that would be a fine, fun time. A BIG pitcher and lots of cut lemon for me to add to mine. And a stack of freshly made pimiento cheese or tomato sammiches.for munches. Good conversation to last a week.
