I am in Vancouver for the holidays. Unlike Toronto, Vancouver is already full-bore spring mode. Cherry blossoms are everywhere and i saw this,- petals on a wet black bough. So… yup, Ezra Pound came to mind.

In a Station of the Metro

Ezra Pound, 18851972

The apparition of these faces in the crowd;

Petals on a wet, black bough.
