When Cherry Blossoms Kiss the Ground

H.Sanbika is medically oriented by degree though she's not practicing it currently, Her passion on scribbling thoughts dragged her here.

Between our two lives there is also the life of the cherry blossom.

When The Cherry Blossoms Kiss The Ground

The wind is getting cold

Suddenly everything is going old

The footsteps of spring was gone

It left when its duty was finally done

Spring's sister is paving its way

Shooting fire wherever it may

Thus the world is suddenly warm

With its pleasant bewitching charm

She bathed in her red and pink - shaded world

To end, she wished it never would

She knows it blossoms but never fruits

But she has no choice, for her mind it soothes

Only then, it doesn't lasts

For time comes when it has to pass

Like tears in her eyes they fall

They fall like blood wrenching her soul

They fall like the cold silver snow

Like million arrows falling by row

They kissed the ground with utter-less grief

They will be trodden by unseeing feet
