Lost Blossom

Tonight on dverse we have been asked to write a haiburn about cherry blossom.


On route to school back in the 1980’s. To a school now vamoosed.

I would stroll along a street named Cherry Orchard. Each front garden holding a tree from the past. The orchard long since gone.

I still pass the street on my way to work. But the trees are all gone, gone, gone.

I miss the blossom on the street every spring. But there are plenty of others aroud the own.

Cherry blossom gone,

No blossom, no spectacle,

Cherry tree missed.

  1. luv the “school vamoosed” phrase
    I remember after many many years going to see my Primary school only to see a waste land

    Happy Monday

  2. Miss the dogwood tree blooms from home, although there’s much more yellow and purple here. Something about their fragrance, too, that can’t be replicated. Enjoyed your Haibun this evening.
