The Raven and the Sakura Tree

High above the world somewhere in Texas,
Dusk greets the breeze that caresses and dances with them,
The Cherry Blossom tree whose pedals fall and dance away with the breeze
And the Raven whom sits perched on one of the branches,
Overlooks the night and keeps this solemn tree company.
The moon’s glittering light shines above, illuminating the world
For the tree and the raven, who sit atop the world in their lonesome duet.
The light sparkles on the darkened feathers of this Raven
And guide the pedals of the Sakura tree as they dance away
Into the dusk that has engulfed the world below.
Alone again,
Tonight like the last and the one before,
They stand in a lonesome world where they sit together
And watch the world below in serenity and peace.
As the last leaf falls and dances with the breeze
Away into the night, the Raven, whom now takes flight into the darkened skies,
Whose glittering feathers fall and dance away as the leaves have done.
As it circles the Sakura tree below, it flies away into the unknown world below
And as it disappears, the blossomless branches of the tree bud anew…

Dusk greets the breeze that caresses and dances with them,
The Sakura tree whose pedals fall and dance away
And the Raven whom sits perched on one of the branches,
Overlooking the night and the world below, keeping the Sakura tree company.
