The pungent scent of 
cherry blossoms 
dissipates as she leaves
the park
She’s been reflecting
Innuendo has it that she
has lost again
The old refrain repeated
over and over
She could almost 
feel nostalgic
“Unlucky at love”
“bitter and aging”
She smiles
Almost benevolent 
toward gossips who
can’t perceive 
her joys repeated
again and again
Because of her courage
to flow 
and grow
let go
