Imagination #4, Weeping Cherry

weeping cherry

The cherry tree weeps

for so great is her beauty

that her reflection

in the waters of the pond

do her self worth no justice

    Love your interpretation of the photo…the tree seeing its reflection. I did my first tanka but have no idea if I did it right. You obviously did! Beautiful!

    poor weeping cherry
    should reflect on her problems
    with the narcissus

    the old tree weeps
    for her once youthful body
    now twisted and stiff
