It's Cherry Blossom Time! Not only is it the prettiest time of year here in DC (at least when the weather cooperates) but it's my second favorite time of year to drive to work.* I spent a lot of time stuck in traffic on the 14th Street Bridge, but it offers a great view of all the cherry trees lining the Potomac.
Here's a haiku I wrote while stuck in traffic in 2008:
Cherry blossom rain
Makes way for unfurling leaves
The river sparkles
Today's Poetry Friday round up is over at A Year of Reading!
*My most favorite is August, when Congress and the rest of the government go on vacation so there's very little traffic.
