the cherry blossom

some broken branches in a glass bottle
narrow at the top so the stems don't reach down far
i have kept it watered for seven weeks now
amazingly the leaves are still green but the blossom
is dry sorta semi purple flowers by now

a few dry leaves and whole bunches of flowers fall off
when i go to refill the jar
i leave them there, on the bedroom floor
the bathroom floor and the bath.
