Under the old cherry tree

High in the sky
white lines write
direction into the blue.

Sounds glide along
here and there
passing around me.

A swallow flies by
and away again
out of the stables
of my neighbour.

Stayed with me at home
kitty cat is purring
cosily at my feet.

The sun draws with shadow
an old cherry tree
on the new-mown grass.

And me, I’m daydreaming about the past
about the time his boughs
still carried cherries.
