Cherry Blossom Haiku

reading haiku

on the metro, en route

to cherry blossoms

a cherry blossom

falls in the shadow

of the Washington monument

IMGP4171.jpg

cherry blossoms float

in bunches toward the Potomac

and the Atlantic

in the tidal basin

a duck pair forages

among flower petal sludge

IMGP4176-2

reflections of cherry

blossoms in goose wake-

petals ripple

IMGP4180

branches heavy

with cherry blossoms dance

over crowded port-a-potties

IMGP4194.jpg
The poet hugs a cherry tree.
