She hid away her colors in the frail,
fragrant flower petals.
Her radiance that once so bright,
forgotten and taken from your sight.
The long lost splendor,
the missed glorious moments.
Her brilliant wild joined the joyous,
🌸A Parting Gift🌸
"Hanafubuki" is the Japanese word that describes the beautiful moment when cherry blossom petals float down on the wind, like snowflakes in a blizzard.
“Hana” means flower and “fubuki” means snow storm.

Longer sleepless evenings
Humid, dark, and bleak
Serene and sorrowful homes
Blossoming sakura trees weep
With heavyhearted lonely buds
Spring, unforgettable saddest spring
Trees not lovelier and so are fields
Nor the day more delightful than the evening
These unhappy blooms in pink
Signal a different kind of grief
Sakura (cherry blossoms) are constantly cited as the most recognizable sign of spring in Japan. When trees all over the country burst into breathtakingly beautiful clusters of pink flowers right about the time it gets warm enough, people yearly go outside to enjoy. Blooming of the sakura is a beautiful gift from mother nature, hanami (sakura viewing) is done by many people in spring. But due to COVID-19 pandemic, parks right now are being closed to avoid more transmission of SARSCoV2.
As the cold came forth,
The trees rain pink atop heads,
Of young and old too.
Your words are like flowers
blooming for the first time
in the early days of spring.
Like the light pink pretty petals spilling into the winds,
whispering intensity and sweetness.
I find myself blushing and gliding.
With your rhymes sending me into a lovely realm,
I am now in your fairyland.
Blunt brown on blue,
Brew of the brilliant skies above
was what I saw,
was when I knew
This was a place of new beginnings.
Foundation of the delicate bud,
So sturdy, yet fragile in its right;
Bearer of the blossoms,
Spirit of life's delights.
I don't ever want to leave!
Petite pink showers,
Pretty petals' plight ー
The sakura succeed
as my sorrows subside,
And we all fall back to the ground.

Your kisses felt as soft as the cherry blossoms,
as sweet as the smell of the grass and the woods,
as warm as the sunshine in April,
Yes, I truly love you and the beauty of spring!
~I miss you!
A quick change of weather brought me to stare outside the window
Standing near the porch, I was then surprised to see snow falling
Almost a month when cherry blossoms began to say hello
Here comes a chilling wind and a surprise snowfall in spring
Hearing its sound, a thread of sad memories began to flow
This pushed me back to the hour of pain, strain, and self-blaming
Worried about the blossoms and pretty wild flowers in the meadow,
I looked around and saw green grass and birds happily chirping
Oh! the woods smell sweet, snow becomes rains and the little stream flows
And everywhere I turn around, I see hope in everything
Plus who among us would not care, cherish and will not go
To admire a lovely tree where blossoms are hung with snow in spring
~A snowy day in spring!
Pink flow’rs, blushing cheeks
A soft kiss to say goodbye
Just one perfect dance
