cherry blossoms

cherry blossoms

i complimented
a woman on
her tattoo
today.
a thin branch that
upon a closer look
had little blossoms as well.
i didn't
expect to
hear
anything
other than
'thank you.'
instead,
she smiled
and asked
if i had any
but then
she realized i was too young.
she gave me
the name of
her friend
and
her card
and told me
to talk to her
any time
about
ink
of all sorts.
the universe works
in odd
ways.

The End
