FLOWERING CHERRY

In the hanging gardens of Zen

Is where she knows I shall wait for her

That we may sit and talk

Or walk beside the koi carp swollen waters

 

In the hanging gardens of Zen

Is where she knows I shall be for her

Underneath the flowering cherries

Now bursting into their majestic splendour

 

In the hanging gardens of Zen

Is where she knows I shall yearn for her

Her pale face etched inside my mind forever

That graceful walk and tilted head

 

In the hanging gardens of Zen

Is where she knows I shall wait for her

For our lives are full of possibilities

And tomorrow comes sooner than you think

A gentle and hopeful poem full of yearning for friendship and love.

I thought it beautifully written and Zen-gentle too. Enjoyable read.
