The exercise:

Kat and I did the Bike the Blossoms today and I snapped a few pictures along the way. I think this one is my favorite at the moment:

So today's four line poem topic is: cherry blossoms. Mine is inspired by a scene we biked past this morning. It turned out sort of like a four line haiku, haha.


A loving father
Raining down blossoms
On his laughing child.

That's a very sweet little poem! Feeling broody? ;-)

In a belated response to a comment from a few days ago about your poem, I couldn't think of a better last line either; the poem's constraints are quite tight I think.

Cherry Blossoms

Tulip sorbet is grey and poisonous,
Lavender tea helps me dream,
Hawthorn salad is best when it's partnered
With Cherry Blosson ice cream.

Broody? Ha. Not quite yet.

Yeah, I tend to force myself into corners with my poetry, the picture one being one I couldn't find a good way out of. Ah well.

Cherry Blossom ice cream sounds awesome though.
