    1. Thank you, Bill. I’ve met many brides in my time and most of them are aiming for a perfect day. This can be quite nerve-inducing for those providing music for the wedding, but hopefully Nature doesn’t suffer from nerves! Happy Monday to you, too, my dear friend. I just opened my arms and caught the love 🙂


    1. Thank you, Dale. The churchyard is full of blossom at the moment, in shades from deep pink to white. It’s so pretty. When you’re walking through the churchyard under those trees and the bells are ringing, too, the combination is sublime 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed the Haiku.

    1. Thank you, Christy 🙂 All of the fruit blossom seems extra abundant this year where I live. Sitting at my desk now, I’m looking out of the window at the beautiful pale pink blossom on my apple tree. It’s a very ancient tree that has looked as if it’s near to death for the last three years, but this year a miracle has happened. I hope it produces a miraculous amount of apples, too!

    1. Thank you 🙂 I write a haiku almost every Monday, so plenty more where this one came from. Also, if you type “cherry blossom” into my blog’s search bar, you will find some more things to delight you, including a beautiful song!

  1. Dear Rochelle,

    I like that title “the mistress of haiku”. Thank you. Although I’m sure I still have much to learn about the noble art of Japanese poetic forms. Some of the original Japanese haiku masters are astounding in their simplicity of a brilliant kind. I wonder if some women wrote amazing haiku then, but it was kept firmly from the public eye! It would be interesting to know but probably impossible to find out.

    We must chat soon. I’ve been hibernating due to various exigencies, including the need to recharge my batteries.

    All best wishes


  2. Nature was truly benevolent! Here the winds have been so constant, whenever you’re passing beneath cherry trees, you’re showered with fragrance and blossoms at once — I love the idea of church bells added to the mix!
