Cherry Blossom in India

A pale pink wisp smokes

across the valley

A flush of colour barely seen

Drifting across the speckled branches

A softly tinged cloud

Of pastel buds

Just a hint

of the riotous blooms to come

That will soon

Fringe the trees with a shawl

of blush stained hues

 As swirls of petals flutter down.



The cherry blossom trees here are a different variety from other parts of the world. They come from the Himalayas and bloom in autumn (fall) in November.
