Parallel lines of cherry blossom trees,
Exuding a fragrance bitter-sweet.
Intertwined their petals and leaves,
Above a serene suburban street.
The speckled white flowers filled the sky,
Breathtaking, surreal to the eye.
I walked through the centre of the street,
My heart filled with awe, skipped a beat.
Pink & white petals gently descending like snow,
I looked up to enjoy the magnificent show.
The bitter sweet fragrance was delightfully pleasant,
An insatiable intoxication within me developed.
I spread my arms wide open, and twirled.
I felt I was inhabiting a different world.
