Blooming Once Again

They said I was dead

Yet I hoped for one more spring

And look, I'm still here!

My cherry tree received a death sentence two years ago. Friends who have been told similar things say that the best way to be with this diagnosis is to practice gratitude for the preciousness of our lives. In spite of everything that makes it hard to feel it, to practice gratitude for the miracle that we are alive, that there is exquisite wonder, beauty, and joy. And to live with hopes of flowers that will bloom again in spring.
