Cherry Blossoms

October 8, 2008
By Xian Chen, Hawthorne, NY

Cherry blossom petals
Dancing in the light wind breeze
Scattered
Imitating pink-white clouds
Or snow
Branches are held high
Glowing with white flames
But
Winter arrives
Still, it stands
A frozen sculpture
Hunched slightly
Arms blanketed in snow
Fixed
Waiting to dance
