Mary Miller Pembleton submitted this lovely poem in response to my National Poetry Month call for poetry (it was in April, but it’s never too late). Read her note below and enjoy!
Thanks Nina! Yes I know it’s May but I am submitting my poem anyway. I celebrated National Poetry Month by posting one poem a day for the entire month of April on my blog and FaceBook. Kinda proud of accomplishing this goal. Kinda love your poetry. Kinda having a great day. Have a taste..
cherry blossom trunk
draped in velvet robes,
cotton candy flakes sugar Asian roots
entrancing grove’s fleeting
blackbird braided branches
bowed heads gently march, sit upon her strands
richest pink silk spilling
crisp cedar heats noses
soft moonlight melting
frozen tears leave a love sheen on spring cheeks
cascading shivers, sudden sky thunder, all at once
