Day 10: Ghazal of Snow in April

Until you see the plum trees drooping pink
You can not believe it would snow in

Or until you hear the crack of a branch breaking
You will not believe it could snow in

But certainly, when the pink petals mix with white flakes
You suddenly believe that it should snow in

The petals and the flakes settle over the fallen branch
You believe you should not see such good snow in

So you stand before another tree, waiting and watching
You wish the tree harm, but it withstood snow in

The tree is unharmed, but you suddenly find that
You have a mean spirit that misunderstood snow in
