A Thousand Blossoms

A THOUSAND BLOSSOMS


A thousand blossoms fell today.
They lay there on the ground,
Still full-blown in a spring-like way
Though blemishes could be found.
Maybe the slightest tinge of brown,
Maybe a bruise or tear,
Maybe we saw them fluttering down
Looking neither rich nor rare.
There was nothing left for them to do
Except curl up and die.
*
But wait! Their beauty shines anew!
Admire, as you pass by!
