Transient beauty

A cherry tree
blooms across
the street —
its boughs
loom over
a roof —
beauty
too close
for comfort —
the chainsaw
sounds —
pink tears
stain the
ground.

    Wonderful, I have coined my own little genre of writing called ‘Transientism’ that focuses on the beauty of things temporary existence. This poem, I think, fits snugly

  4. These tears of many colors from many sources are crying all the time for the destruction of this planet.

    • Sad but true, my friend. I too lament the destruction of our forests and ecosystems and have dedicated my life to help restore my corner of the planet. You can either be part of the problem or part of the solution. I choose the latter. Have a wonderful weekend, Carl!
      Cheers,

    Beautiful…but so sad..! 😦 It pains to see nature being cut up slowly.

    • Thank you, my friend! Yes, it was very sad to see the first tree to bloom on our street cut down in the prime of its life. Coincidentally, my wife and I planting some Indian plum trees in our yard that same day, so with every ending there is a new beginning. I hope you have a wonderful weekend 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler
