“Under the Cherry Blossoms” published in special Persimmon Tree issue

I have been writing extensively during this time of the virus, some of which I have self-published on Facebook.  Persimmon Tree just selected one of my favorite short pieces–“Under the Cherry Blossoms”–for its special issue Love in a Time of Corona.  For diversion and inspiration, I urge you to read the short prose pieces and magnificent poetry selected for this issue.
