BLOSSOM TREES

 

A coil squashed bursts into life

At godly heights above the people and their passing feet

‘you have not defeated us’ they protest in fireworks of throbbing colours,

Velvety colours, softening the dark mornings

 

Sometimes wind pierces the idyllic day, a cold knife against soft flesh

A silent descent, careful and measured

A scattered blanket warms the concrete underfoot

Snow fall of delicate petals; the children build blossom men in the streets.
