Tree Whispers

Carpe Diem #147 (First Cherry Blossom)


One day bare branches
bursting with buds
Sun brings first blossom

***

Silent signal among trees
Blossoms unfold

Orchard of blooms

    1. I don't drive every day. So one day it's buds on bare branches, and next time all in bloom at once. If a nice warm day between drives :)

    1. Thank you. The synchronicity with which they seem to bloom at once made me wonder about some kind of energy relay between them. Glad you like it!

  5. I'm glad there are silent signals. I would hate for everything to be blared to the world!

    More synchronicity.
