Moon and cherry tree
Together in bloom,
Full.  Moon and blossoms
Waning in light winds,
Fall.  Pieces of white
Drop, softly caressing
Sacred ground.  Beneath

The noise of maples
Opening clenched fists
From purple prayers
Uttered under star filled
Neon winter nights, find
Answer in April.  Arms,
Hands, fingers stretch
In fulfilling praise,
Welcoming spring.
