One Thousand Cherry Blossoms

Scatter to the winds like a thousand cherry blossoms.

Let your spirit escape this world,
For all that suffers the pains of lost love
Shall rise again.
Loneliness will only last for a short time, 
For like God we will create a place 
Where individuals are to our own image.
So, in your mind imagine
A wonderland of beauty, 
And let that be your calling.
In time you will shine 
From the glow of your hearts’ ambitions.
While in the scorn eyes of lost men
You will be a guide to paradise.
So, run to your destiny,
For the hour of the sun is now.
And cling to your fate. 
O Holy seed of the blessed one.
~ Tony Paradise’s Poet ~


  1. comforting and inspiring tony…i love the cherry blossoms…love to stand in the rain of them in season…i like the phoenix like first stanza…

    hey, you know if you visit some of the other poets, they will probably be more likely to read you…


  2. Cherry blossoms… just the thought make me smile… you have used them well…

    there is a joyous melancholy (which sounds like a contradiction) in falling cherry blossoms for me.
