The SSB Drever and I were walking last evening around the square just a little before sunset. We rounded a corner under a fragrant cloud. I looked up to find us standing under an apple tree in full bloom. Through the blossoms was the waning sun reaching from behind golden clouds. I began to think of the juxtaposition of the metaphors of spring and dusk, seasons, the illusion of time and its passing, and the choices we make all through our lives, whether or not it is a sacrifice of precious days.

Apple Blossoms at April Dusk

Dawn blooms. Cooling dusk.
Petals fall to birth red orbs.
Is love the perfume?

    I am amazed at your gentleness.

    Everything we possess we purchase with our time; it is only in retrospect that know if we paid too high a price.

    I wrote a Haiku a while back with similar thoughts going through my mind.

    Green leaves are yearning
    For warm sunlight while turning
    Bright hues for burning

    “…rounded a corner under a fragrant cloud…” Very nice.
