Take This Walk

Scent of love,
Still clinging to us,
We wake,
Bed clothes tossed aside,
Bright eyes,
Life’s singular gifts,
Adorning us,
Freshening spring morning,
Azure sky,
Amber sunrise bordering,
Framing our Saturday morning walk,

Hands clasped,
Fleece warming,
Old T-shirts, tussled,
Makes no difference,
Spring’s grand garments we wear,
Dawn’s dew, sweet perfume dressing,
Vernal elegance,
Cherry trees a mantel,
Pink pastels our crown,
Opening all that is good.

Slight breeze,
Now building,
Cherry tree canopy,
Relaxed murmuring,
Releasing satin riches,
A million pink petals,
Whisper-soft snowfall,
Filling our lives,
Each tiny roseate gem,
A feather-light dream,
Born in us,
Floating down from Heaven,

Walk with me now,
As we paint day’s plush portrait,
Each step we take,
Each smile we share,
Each breath of love inhaled….

Soft-hued peace washing over us,
Decorating our shared dream,
Tomorrow and the next day…

And forever.

Each morning with you,
Holding hands and hearts,
A cherry blossom snowfall,
Grace, swirling,
Beautiful, becoming,
Mother of pearl, perfect,


All so clear,

As we take this walk…

Have you ever seen a stand of gorgeous, pastel pink cherry trees just past peak of bloom? And if so, the glorious shower of limitless soft petals as breeze releases them to fill the air? Surely one of life’s most precious, wonderful experiences.
