Mount Fuji

At times

I feel like

a courageous

cherry tree

precariously

balanced

on the edge of

Mount Fuji.

 

Roots locked in soil

clinging, dug in,

defying odds,

leaning over the edge,

Cirque du Soleil acrobat

daring to perform,

despite the dangers.

 

Japanese block print clouds

wispy around my trunk,

my blooms

bursting open

confident,

defiant.
