petals

carninals in the cherry tree

the cherry blossoms have fallen

leaving naked sepal and calyx,

tiny stars in the daylight;

pale pink petals

flutter to the ground.

yet life is still blooming!

pale pink feathers

fluff in the corners of the tree,

as

the cardinals

renew their vows

to nature.

and the sound of fledglings fills the air.
