Weeping Cherry

Have you ever heard of a weeping cherry? I never have. Obviously, it exists. The most amazing thing about art is that you may write about anything, even if you only imagine it. No need for reality. At least, that much of reality. Of course, strictly speaking, we wouldn’t go far without a standing point 🙂 

After a long absence from haiku, I am back. I hope this one is not too clumsy.

  2. 4joy – I’m glad I wasn’t the only one surprised. Thanks for reading it!

  3. I am so happy to see you here again Mariya you were missed. And with such a wonderful haiku on Carpe Diem’s Imagination ‘weeping cherry’, a tree you hadn’t heard of until now. This is an excellent haiku and by far not clumpsy. Just a gorgeous haiku, really good painting with words. Very well done. Hope to see you here again. Namaste.

  4. I’ve only heard about it before because I had to translate a text about it.

    Loved your haiku! it holds such emotion!

    • Adriana, thanks for your visit! And thank you for you kind words!
      So, there is such a tree. And so, you do translations 🙂 I am a translator, of course, no need to mention it.

    I’ve always wished for a weeping cherry tree. Maybe one day. For now we have a dwarf Japanese maple that is beautiful. For being away from haiku for awhile, you came back with great beauty in your words.

    Wow I have a weeping cherry in my back yard and I guess I take it for granted! It is a joy to behold when it is in bloom. I hope you get to see one in person one day! Lovely haiku!

    • Hey, Wabi Sabi, later I saw some more pictures of the weeping cherry and I really love it in bloom. And its name is wonderful. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  8. what heart sees, eyelashes feel – I see the weeping cherry fluttering in the wind, scattering tears of dew.
    Lovely thank you for sharing with us 🙂
