Description

 Sakura by Ross Thompson, written during Lockdown 2020.

A cherry blossom at the bottom of your street
has wept, casting petals, said to be edible,

onto rain-soaked tarmac, flavouring newly fresh
air with vanilla tobacco of sweet meadow.

Confetti the colour of pink coral now lies
beneath your feet: a sign that you are still alive.
