A Haiku - Cherry Buds
Poor, pruned cherry buds,
blooming here indoors with me,
while for spring we yearn.
Pruning my cherry trees in late winter, I save some trimmed branches, and I take them indoors with me.
Placed where the cut ends have water, the branches' own urge for life, coupled with the spring-like warmth of the indoors air, soon sees their buds opening, and spring blossoms come safe and early.
Part of their saving and blossoming is the result of my love for what was pruned from the mother trees.
The rest is my own yearning for the spring they and I await.
