Honeyed light

The evening sun

Shone like honey in the cherry blossom tree,

Blossoms

Creating dancing light

Behind paper-thin pink petals.

Bokeh copy

Buds burst open

To drink in that spring treacle

Opening

And danced

On the edge of light.

Dancing

Even this shot where I didn’t focus properly

Has a lovely abstract quality about it:

The essence of spring light.

    I’ll take a gallon of your honey-like spring treacle to go; oh an one straw ( I don’t share ). No ice thank you, it reminds me of winter. Your colour just as delicious, no, probably more so. One thinks green is the colour of spring, but if one looks real close, it is the colour hues which come to life in the added humidity of springtime brought on by the most intense white burning Sun of the year.
