After the Storm (Portland Japanese Garden, Rain)

P1060751Having missed the big petal storm

I settle for the pale glow of those cherry blossoms

still clinging to the their tree in the face of a steady rain

for the lovely fallen

glittering and wet.

forming new flowers on the tree’s understudies

and a carpet that I crush

on the way to the pond

where the wind has

scattered cherry blossoms

over waiting koi.
