Spring Falls Pink


A line in yesterdays post was inspired by a picture of poet Wendy Morton.

I wrote her and asked about the picture and she sent me this poem as an explanation.

A beautiful and sensuous portrait of Spring and place. Thank you Wendy.


In Chinatown, cherry blossoms line

Fan Tan Alley,

fall into the boxes of fragrant pears,

baby bok choi;

decorate the mangos and starfruit.

Water chestnuts and watercress

are in their element.

Here, in the rain,

spring falls pink.
