In the Falling Blossoms by Raymond A. Foss

A reminder of mortality
in the falling blossoms
captured on images
the spirit of their nation

The ancient screens
images of beauty
the cherry blossoms
the pines
and the coastlines

Today’s reality
changing the imagery
destruction and the turning
the coming of the blossoms
in this new season

The wastelands, the water
not removing the beauty
Sill there within them
the spirit of their nation

Rising again, the coming of the blossoms
to bloom again in colors
to surely sooth the senses
yet reminding us ever
of the fragility of life
