Ebony Chrysler
Parked beneath a cherry tree,
Flecked in petals pink

When a soft wind breathed
A gentle gust; weightless flakes
Shaken, scatt’ring free,

Drifting dreamily
On a flight path uncharted,
Slanting ever down,

Silently, softly —
Not like impatient droplets
Nor the hail’s cruel rattle —

Stopping on a field
Of midnight polished metal;
Shivering, shaking,

Fragile as starlight,
Like sugar powder sprinkled
By some faerie sprite.

    1. Well, if it helps, I took this picture with the moonroof open and my cellphone camera pointed directly at the branches.🙂 Also, photos do a very poor job of capturing the motion of the petals as the breeze runs through them.

  1. I want to voice my love for your generosity in support of those people who must have guidance on this subject. Your special dedication to passing the solution around was particularly useful and have in every case made girls much like me to realize their desired goals. This informative help signifies a great deal to me and substantially more to my colleagues. Thanks a ton; from everyone of us.
