Pink Snow


Photo by P. Gerrie


It’s early May, or so they say,

The wind and rain’s like autumn.

The cherry tree sets blossoms free

That cover all the bottom.


The grass was green, but as you’ve seen

It looks like snow has fallen

The petals pink are fine, I think,

They tell me spring is calling.

  6. I’m smiling as I type, Anneli. Your poem was truly fun and spirited, and goes well with P. Gerrie’s wonderful photo. I love it when spring blossoms or flower petals decorate the ground. Great post!

  8. Sure looks like spring, sounds chilly though. Things are slower to start here but there are more flowers and buds every day.

  12. Many years ago ( 70´s ) I was lucky enough to spend a few days during the short cherry blossom season in Hamburg, where I enjoyed the Japanese “Hanami” celebration of the many Japanese Immigrants of Hamburg at the time.
    A few years later I enjoyed the same in Kobe, Japan.
    Now, at my new home in Germany, there is a huge cherry tree just outside my entrance door, which last spring produced an enormous amount of cherries, and just last week, an abundance of beautiful cherry blossoms 🙂
    Isn´t it a shame that most folks these days pass these marvels of nature without the knowledge and/or appreciation 😦
    Life is Good AND beautiful 🙂
    (I was going to upload a pic, but with this template that dis not allowed) 😦
    Cheers !

  13. Lovely pink poem. My grandson gets pink petal showers in Portland. And I have to be careful where I park, or my car is buried. Love it.
