The Taste of Cherry - Kissing

Kiss of Cherry

how many, many things
they bring to mind — 
cherry blossoms!

 Such a beautiful post Chèvrefeuille made today about Cherry Trees and Blossoms in Japan!

It’s easy to feel romantic when being among the blooming cherry trees. And nostalgic. We had in our garden where I grew up. Two trees. The large one – with bigger and black sweet berries – I used to climb to the top, where the best berries could be found.
I think I like more to be romantic now …

overwhelmed
by lovely kisses – into
cherry blossom
you took my hand first
and then my heart
 Now I long so much to spring. First I will enjoy spring in Budapest and then I will enjoy spring in Lund. And I know where to find all the cherry blossom rooms in my cities. I also look forward all the kisses …

Carpe Diem #1157 Sakura,
the national pride of Japan.
