dr_con Posted February 14, 2010 Share Posted February 14, 2010 When the Cherry Trees Bloomed She found a Capricorn earring on the ground and laughed at the irony since that sign doesn't believe in astrology and I was focused on the crack in the sidewalk uneven and bright green with moss unwinding and endless An interruption in the fabric of the foundation as we discussed our plans Today is Valentine's another made up holiday without the pretension to be called divine and I'm trying to order my life The Vessel needs polishing and re-casting All sins and savories the backbone of poetry need to be reformed to make room for new roles and the acceptance of change The liminal between the assumed solidity of beliefs and the inevitable greening of the infrastructure as new life feeds on the inanimate ideas we call clarity The cherry trees are in bloom as I walk to get coffee and chocolate for my sweetheart still asleep beside the cat My prejudice against the color pink disappears in the riot of Sunday morning Spring being early The delicate buds feel no guilt or shame at their demise Their impermanence is coded by no hand They do not blush as I stare agape at the sensuous assault on my sensibility They do not serve my will and laugh at the idea of a garden The petals go as they are subject to wind and rain and earth A collage of colors flame in and along that crack in the sidewalk where soon having feasted on those fruits of no-labor I'll contemplate this aging vessel and start re-building again.
