Poem: Wispy Pink

By: Charlotte Choi

Looking in the mirror
Seeing a cherry blossom still a sapling
Wanting to see the petals grow and fall

Blossoms being to develop
As I continue to wait
Wanting to see the petals grow and fall

Looking at the roots and the petals
I am strong in my roots but fragile in my petals
The sapling soon burgeoned into a tree

I soon fall into the secular world
My roots are running dry
I search for an oasis

Awakened by the living water
I begin to feel new emotions
My old petals begin to fall
The new petals now grow passionately

Others believe
The life of a cherry blossom tree
To be tragic, short-lived, and bittersweet

I believe
My life of being a cherry blossom tree
To be filled with satisfaction, warmth, and everlasting love

Looking in the mirror
Seeing a cherry blossom tree
Now I see the petals grow and fall with zeal
