Wedding photo shoot
Cherry blossom in churchyard
Nature obeys bride
The last line is a classic. I love that. I love your work. There’s a whole lot of love heading your way across the Pond. Happy Monday, Sarah!

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 🙂
What a most fabulous, beautiful photo!
As for the Haiku – brilliant!
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.
Wow.. must be so wonderful…
The last line ~ genius! We have cherry blossoms here and they do make me smile 🙂
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!
Lovely combination of picture and verse.
Thank you, Magarisa 🙂
My pleasure, Sarah. 😊
I love it! Cherry Blossoms are one of my favorite trees. Please write more.
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!
This is beautiful… And You made me want to listen to this song by Lana del Rey: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpUdFK32-xY 😉 Best wishes.
I’m glad you found this beautiful, and thank you so much for the link to that song, which is beautiful, too. She has a very melodious and soothing singing voice 🙂
So glad that you liked it! 😀 😉
I love this one! 🙂
Thank you, Carla 🙂
You are the mistress of haiku. Lovely photo and the perfect day for a wedding. Love that last line.
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
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!
It looks so pretty when the wind catches up cherry blossoms and tosses petal confetti over everything and everyone 🙂
Just stopped in to say hi Sarah. Sent by Joss! Looking forward to reading you.
Hi Chris, thank you for stopping by. That’s nice of Joss sending you over to my blog. It’s a great community, isn’t it?
It absolutely is Sarah!
both verse and image are beautiful!
Thank you, Cybele 🙂
I love cherry blossom and loved the image of it obeying the bride – very appropriate!
That particular cherry blossom proved itself very obedient recently, however now it lies as a dense carpet on the ground, its duty done!
