Patience And Cherry Blossoms - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

In March the Japanese
get impatient.
When will the cherries bloom?
Too late; too soon. These
days the latent
energy of spring simmers.

But the cherry tree
is not on our schedule,
not penciled in for a Monday show,
not under our control, but free
and under the rule
of the laws of Nature.

Take your time, cherry-flower.
You're worth the wait.
