Budding Hope

There was sun before the rain, yesterday. For a moment I thought the rain would sweep me away. Then came the night. This morning it was bitterly cold. A cherry tree blushed into bloom. I think spring is to come, and hope is in bud. I breathe on it at times, to keep it warm. I’m waiting. Waiting still.

  1. Beautiful :) I don’t think we have any blossom, yet.

    “A cherry tree blushed into bloom”– *really* like that. That’s exactly what it’s like–first covered over with a blush of pinkening buds. Is that one of your photos? Lovely!
