Cherry Trees In Full Bloom (Japan)

 

You tell me you don’t believe in magic.  You say fairies aren’t real.  You say I need to get my head out of the clouds and see reality.  I think you just need to open your eyes…

the first brave flower

peeks its head out from the snow

promises of Spring

Poppy hid herself away in the dark for so long.  At first, the others had done this to her but now her captivity was by her own hand. She had to step outside and find who she was to become.

In the bright sunshine

as her name compels her to

the flower opens

Flammagenitus

“…a flammagenitus cloud in … California” from wikipedia

Across the room, hazy with cigarettes, our eyes lock.  Our judgment may be a bit clouded by too many drinks, (vodka for me, whiskey for you) but at this moment we are exactly what each other needs.  We make our exit from the bar and quickly check in at the hotel across the street.

fire stoked, heat builds

creates impressive display

produces dry lightning

Broken Heart ~haiku

His indifference

crushed her most foolish organ

caged beneath her breast

manipulating

as if it were hot, red wax

a flame, extinguished

Sweet Dreams of Spring

she, as the flower

deep in a honeyed slumber-

awaits the sun’s love

New Beginnings ~haiku

first light, a fresh start

the last years sins washed away

forgiven by rain
