flowering, floundering

My spanish shawl flowers even as the cherry

reminds me that surviving takes more than

bread and water. Tiny petals spread across

the soil like a cure and indeed rain falls

and microscopic drops slurp into veins

so that all growth takes the shape of life.

Except a weeping cherry, floundering
