I believe that no matter who you are we all leave footprints on this Earth


With cheeks pink colored
She dances around like wind
As she sways in the bright light
Those lips stained deep red

Like a branch she moves
So tenuous and tender
Attention on her
Her eyes sparkle like diamonds
My Cherry Blossom

I wrote this for my Creative Writing class. My teacher encouraged all the students to submit a piece of their work to this site. Chery Blossom is a Tanka (Which is like a haiku but the syllable order is a little different)
