poem: waiting for spring

February 20, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

next to the old stump,
a new-planted cherry tree;
waiting for spring . . .

Our neighbors recently cut down the old cherry tree between our houses. It mostly grew over our front yard and was a big part of our view, but it was rooted on their side and had started to grow into their foundation. We just planted a new little cherry tree in our yard, not far from the old stump. It’s bare now, but I really hope it gets settled in comfortably enough to give us cherry blossoms in its first spring. We’ll see!
