Blown from the tree

A pair of cherry blossoms

Falls together.

For Carpe Diem: Weatherbeaten

Five pm –

I emerge into sunlight

And cherry blossom.

Oh to live

On forget-me-not blue

And scent of lilac.

for Carpe Diem Beatitudes (blessed are the poor)

Pink clouds –

Cherry blossoms await

The sunset.

A mass of orange

Sprouting in front gardens

Election placards.

Does the tree know

How lovely its blossoms

Are to the bees?

Magnolia cups

Refreshing the traveller

With spilled perfume.

On the page

A cherry blossom lands –

Wisdom flowering.

For Carpe Diem: Wisdom

Blossoming

Among cherry branches

Bird song.

First cherry blossoms –

Today, even the wind

Holds its breath.

Update: Just after I posted this, Chevrefeuille put up his latest prompt on Carpe Diem, which is pranayana (breath control). Not sure this really fits the brief but it seems rather serendipitous, so I’m going to link in anyway.
