Pink Cherry blossoms

Petals so lovely and light

Swaying in the wind.


Down on my windshield

As I drove by High Park Gate

Sakura I love.


Sakura so vain

Three pink petals slipped in

In my bag I packed and go!


Gone to the airport

Customs seized my sakura

Late, I missed my plane.

      What can I say? Beautiful Japanese sakura blossoms, and poetry--complemented as well as penned by a lovely, enigmatic, and exotic writer.

      Thank you for this gorgeous respite on a very busy Monday.

      Aloha, my friend!

      travmaj: I know. These customs officers are sometimes annoying. So, I dare not risk. In one of my flights one of the groomers handed me a beautiful stem of their local flower (forgot what it's called) but I can't take it with me through the customs. So, poor flower was left at the galley of the aircraft. I had to take a picture as a souvenir. :)

      Well, thank you for coming by. As always, I sincerely appreciate hearing from you.

      Love from the sky~
