kissing sakura petals;
the end of spring

    There is something almost grotesque about the juxtaposition of the beauty and delicacy of the sakura petals with the the harshness and ugliness of cigarette butts and the effect is magnified by linking them with such a strong emotional word like “kissing.” That jarring sensation underscores the return to reality suggested by your last line about the end of spring.

    I really like this poem.
