Spring walk

While I was in New Jersey, I met up with a friend to walk in a park.

According to his crystal ball, it was going to be a fine spring day.

Crystalball.jpg

Blossoms had already popped on the trees

Like petalled popcorn,

Underbridge.jpg

Gracefully weeping

Into the bowl of the river.

I even found the beautiful limbs of a tree

Embracing the one next to it —

Reminding us that nature is love.
