Summer in Japan

I spent the summer in Japan
beside you in the countryside
after the blossoms had faded
almost as quickly as they came.
And I noticed the way you looked
at me
after our last kiss faded
into the firey sunset--
there was a faint chill in the air
that day
but our summer in Japan
will always
warm my heart and
stain my memory
like the blossoms pressed
under our bare feet.
