GENIE’S LAMP: Blossom

By GENIE NAKANO

blessed, I was born in May the month when my native land blooms

spring unpredictable sun today next day rain let’s walk the path of spring

ahhh, sweet rose your fragrance makes me dizzy as you catch me on the path

crickets thrum nights perfumed with jasmine my bucket list… to die in spring while a full moon shines
