Fallen Petals

The rain and wind have come back, and winter seems to have returned. I awoke to find my Wisteria that was in full bloom the day before surrounded by a sea of fallen petals reminding me of this poem by Men Hao Ran:


Sleeping in spring,

unaware of the dawn


All around me,

I hear the birds singing


Last night,

the sound of wind and rain


Flowers have fallen,

I wonder how many……..
