Yesterday, when I was driving home from work, I saw the neatest thing. The sun was very red/orange as it was setting and it was coloring the fluffy snow that was stuck to the tree branches. It made the bare trees look like the pictures I've seen of the Japanese cherry trees in bloom. For those of you who are not Japanophiles, check out the whole cherry blossom party thing here. In honor of that odd but lovely moment, I wrote this haiku:
Winter Into Spring
Setting sun shines red
Through clots of snow on bare trees.
Cherry blossom time!
|Cherry blossom time!|
