Sakura Matsuri

Sleeping under the trees on Yoshino mountain
The spring breeze wearing Cherry blossom petals.

the Spring wind
scattering blossoms
I saw it in a dream
but when I awoke the sound
was still rustling in my breast

    I squint, smile, and sneeze
    Tears in eyes, but it’s alright
    In this warm sunshine
