After a rainy spell, I stepped into the sunshine of a spring afternoon to go to the blooming cherry tree near the city green which was about a mile away. I did not particularly relish walking on city roads, busy as they were even on a Sunday afternoon. Fear of getting run over by oncoming vehicles chased away any creative thought that might have initially teased me. However, not even the unpleasantness of crossing busy roads could stop me from being close to that cherry tree which seemed to be the only one in a public place in our city. All my weariness dissipated the minute I stood under its pink canopy flowers. The glow of the petals lit by the spring sunshine washed over me and filled me with joy. I took as many pictures of the flowers as I could, unmindful of the staring passersby. I savored the moment, a moment just between me and the tree, a moment not so different from time spent with a good good friend.

time passes too soon
It has been awhile since my last post. Poems and pictures and coherent useful thoughts do not come easy these days. But, Spring has finally finally settled in and it is wonderful. I hope you are having a great season wherever in the world you may be. 🙂
