In honour of the blossom

Collage, AW, 2009

A new poem and a poem I wrote a while ago, both to honour the cherry blossom:

I’m mindful of the cusp of blossom time.
I’m mindful of the need to be ready.
I’m mindful of the need to evade thoughts of kettles
and other hardware.

Blossom

Enquiring;
enticing;
quizzical;
searching;
patient;
giddy;
in full costume;
adorned.
The bridgegroom puts a morsel in her mouth:
feeds her.
Blossom reaches down.
