Omer Day 31-Morning Sun Bathes the Weeping Cherry

Tiferet sh’b Hod*
Morning sun bathes
the weeping cherry as she flares
her blossoms—a floating
cloud of pink celebration.

She’s a winged beauty
balanced on this late April day,
lifting her branchy arms
in graceful surrender
to the whispering breeze.

Praise to all the winter forces
just a week ago—blizzard
winds, deep freeze ice
layering each twig, the soft
clumped snow,

that weighed down every one
of her compact, uncountable
ruby buds.  Look
how she survives and prospers!
