Small messages of spring  ⋮  Cherry stars.

In my new lovely home made of the Himalayan mud and cow dung
I turn on the butter-yellow porch lights:
white flowers of the nearby cherry tree gleam

soft white stars slouching over my front garden.

I turn off the porch lights:
distant stars come to light

millions of them slouching over my cherry tree and its soft flowers.
