Such a Strange Country

Such a strange country
I live in
– the rest of the nation
is covered
in snow and ice,
while today
I came across
a cherry tree
already in blossom.
I tried to take
a photo to show
you,
but the lighting wasn’t right.

The gloomy clouds
behind the blossoms
made them appear
black
instead
of
their
delicate
pinkish
white.

Soon, the blossoms
will cast themselves
upon
the
ground
– a whitish brown carpet
temporarily
covering the grassy mud,
the pavement,
the crocus buds
below.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll find a different tree with better light.
