the cherry tree

summer evening . . .
the cherry tree
ripe with promise


swirl of dark clouds
above the prairie
. . . awaiting prognosis

A haiku written as my wife
awaited a melanoma screen -
turned out fine


her morning air
. . . not of haughtiness
but of gardenias

Glad your wife's prognosis is fine. I know what it's like waiting for a loved one's diagnosis. Pure hell.

Lovely cherry haiku.
