The Cherry Trees

Rating: 3.2
The cherry trees bend over and are shedding,
On the old road where all that passed are dead,
Their petals, strewing the grass as for a wedding
This early May morn when there is none to wed.

This poem is terrific. It displays layers of scenery and we fill in the blanks for creative thinking.

Nature's continuous cycle birth life death in the petals celebration or tears while they fall it's what the reader perceives...this could have been a haiku but as a short poem it says alot, too.

To strengthen this poem it needs to be longer. Sometimes the shortest poems say it all, but in this case the length is not very memorable because of the topic and the formality of the poem. The first 3 lines are cool, but the last line doesnt seem to go with the poem at all.

Sorry Kay I can't agree with you.I think the last line shows us the ever giving essence of nature's bounty that continues
