Pink Blizzards

Picture this tonight

as you lie awake,

unable to fall asleep

when life’s

heavy burdens

weigh you down.

Vibrant pink blossoms, as large as carnations, explode together as the tree limbs bend, heavy in full flower display. Pink petals have fallen beneath, in full diameter of the tree, resembling pink snow. Spring blows her gentle whistle in the wind, sending thousands of fragrant pink petals off the tree, to dance in the air, in a bright pink delicious flurry. The annual spring blossom contest has begun. It is magical and fleeting but best of all… it is free.
