the petals on the ground

on this first day of spring I remember vividly another beautiful spring day walking beneath the towering cherry blossom trees dressed up in their pink finery so full that they blocked out most of the sky that was a brilliant blue with only a few of the fluffiest clouds I held the hand of the… Continue reading the petals on the ground
