A snowball in the face
of the chery tree.

Several years ago it was snowing around Easter, while the fruit trees were in bud already and some of them even had first blooms. My grandchildren were snowballing in the orchard. A playful moment of carelessness and a snowball attacked the cherry tree’s canopy. The children gathered around a bough on the ground, and I could see they were sorry for their misdeed. My granddaughter Jelena started to pick up and collect fallen petals from the ground, and granny was watching all that from the terrace.
This haiku is from my haiku collection published in 2017 (Yet I will, yet I won’t), from a haiku sequence Easter Bluebells.
