  • Lovely thought! Are the cherry blossoms really out there already, or is this looking forward in anticipation?

    • They’re really out there! I took this picture yesterday by the Willamette in Portland. The Steel Bridge is my favourite Portland bridge, and cherry blossom time is my favourite time of year – both here and at home in Ireland. I love the contrast between the fragile, fleeting petals and the hard, enduring steel. They’ll all be gone with the first big gust of wind…

    I ask them to take a poem
    and hold it up to a light
    like a color slide.
