Cherry Trees

Cherry Trees

Japan understands the cherry trees worth

nurturing

nature

was normal in the Far East as childbirth

satisfying

taste-buds

is a matter of what you love, and your girth

flowers

occupy

the eyes, men should be full of beauty’s birth

creativity

belongs

to the strong of heart, trees are full of dearth

feasting

entreats

the taste buds, and it is a time for mirth

maintaining

stamina

takes time away from what must is set forth

eating

defeats

the appetite in ways that seem unworth

tasting

sampling

at the grocery store seems a sweet delight

popping

cherries

off the tree is sweet, leaves taste of hindsight

Auntie

watered

her cherry tree and offered her foresight

deathly

hallows

struck her down, no time left in line of sight

cherries

falling

to the ground being left in the limelight

facing

lingering

senses of cherries in the night highlight

making

cherry

pies is a sweet taste of evening moonlight

cobbler

smelling

up the house is like a tasty birthright.
