Cherry Blossum


Lower than shoes can travel

Feeling dirt

Not as filth but a gritty connection

To their Mother


Firm, immobile, but never impatient

Immune to sore joints

Stand ground against windstorm

Or days of worthless drought


With etched muscles, rough and detailed

Carry all gifts

Of both generous and robbing seasons

Grateful for every weight burden


Outstretched to feel their supplier within them

Triumphant, lifting

Proud to support hands flesh

Feet of feline or feathered home-seekers


Crooked and nimble

But colored in fluorescent pride

Of pinks and whites in brilliant shade

To fall away with the rain
