Cut Cherry Branches in Winter - Cerisiers coupés en hiver {Paris Street Photo}


Before the arrival of spring

You have the lunar festival

Which allows for cherry blossoms

To bloom in buckets...

They resemble a harvest of sorts

A harvest of good-will and hope

That the new year will be fragrant and rosy -

Like their petals resembling pink mice ears;

Light and airy and sweet

Like their scent of evanescent prunes

The little corollas are listening to the rain drops

Hitting the gray pavement

Of a city of stone and water, lights and plastic

In which their fugitive smell gets lost

Drowned in the noise of cymbals and footfalls.

Too wet to sing the song of cherries.
