Pink-petaled carpet welcomes eager feet, and blossoms scent the air with possibilities. Golden butterflies shimmer like sun-kissed wishes. One snowy egret stands sentry at the pond, while fat green ducks float by serenely. Our hands touch as a squirrel demands our attention, his tail fluffed, and onyx eyes begging for a treat. Alas, our pockets are empty of nuts and seeds, but our hearts are full of Spring’s sweet song.
Cherry blossom dreams
Linger long in memory
After love has gone
