What a strange thing!
to be alive
beneath cherry blossoms.
~Kobayashi Issa

What a beautiful walk! Thank you for sharing with us. I've been reading Issa poems as well this week. :0) - Happy Poetry Month, and Happy Spring!

Gorgeous, Tabatha - both your poem and your photos! Happy Spring! =)

I've collected poetry by Kobayashi Issa, but hadn't read that one. So nice!
And that baby turtle just melted me. :-)

The woodpecker tree. Surely you're going to write a poem. Yes?
