One Poem by Ava Drake

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

Viewing Cherry Blossoms at Ueno, Katsukawa Shunzan

Early in the morning, before the crowds storm in
Clear blue skies, slight April chill
Three friends eagerly walking through Ueno Park
Once a year they dress, in their finest robes
Cyclical, like the blossoms
They renew their vows
Of the promise they made, as children
To grace the start of spring as a trinity
Together they reminisce on the memories
In their palms, the delicate flowers
Are another year of possibilities.
