Cherry Blossom Haiku

reading haiku

on the metro, en route

to cherry blossoms


a cherry blossom

falls in the shadow

of the Washington monument


cherry blossoms float

in bunches toward the Potomac

and the Atlantic


in the tidal basin

a duck pair forages

among flower petal sludge


reflections of cherry

blossoms in goose wake-

petals ripple


branches heavy

with cherry blossoms dance

over crowded port-a-potties

The poet hugs a cherry tree.
