floral
cherry   blossoms
promise  filling  the  air
transitory   nature  of  life
full   bloom

cherry 
 flowering   tree 
 awakening  blossoms
pink and white
  petals  call  me  home 
 safely

sweet   scent 
 cherry  lined  street 
 all  roads  lead  me  to  you
 tangled  in your limbs, petals  fall

  1. Beautiful, Truedessa....."promise filling the air".......and birdsong.....and today the hummingbirds returned, one peered in my window to let me know and I rushed to hang up the feeders. We get a kazillion of them here all summer. I fill three feeders every other day and my sister has two. BIG ones!

  2. These thoughts and words are so lovely. I'd love to be tangled in the limbs of a blossoming tree. I think it would transform me. Loved reading this.

  3. "promise filling the air"--Oh! I picked the same line as Sherry! Actually, I love every third line, the middle line of each--they make a poem all by themselves. FIne safety and entanglement in the transitory. Scentsational!
