Wedding in December

Ms. Shumaine asked me to create her wedding cake that would be something out of the ordinary.  We looked at several designs and decided on a cherry blossom motif, only using shades of purple.

Up Against a Brick Wall

Up against a brick wall--
It appears to be a dead end--
I bang my head until I understand
This is an invitation to turn [not stop]
or go around [not quit]
or dig a tunnel [not give up]
or build a bridge [not surrender]
I will slam against this wall
as long as it takes to realize
That turning changes my question
from "Why me?" to "Now where?"
and then I am on my way again.
