Spring Cherry, The Girl Who Broke Free

This picture is part of the display of a google+ user who names herself Haru Sakura.

Haru Sakura

I got a good job
voice acting your latest part,
the one you wrote for
Spring Cherry, the girl
who broke free of winter ice
by her own power.

I stand on the side
with a screen between my voice
and the microphone
and speak falsetto
as comes easy as ever
and I don't allow
any more pictures.

Haru Sakura can't be
a bearded fat man
of sixty damn eight!

Written in reply to Irene's "Spring"
Not a chicken anywhere. Also in response to We Write Poems

Voice acting is an actual job and people build lifetime resumes in the work. There are commercials, announcements, phone answering services, and of course acting jobs, in radio style drama and comedy and in cartoons. This poem references Japanese Anime. A person can get really busy if they are good at the work.


  1. So you surrender?

    1. ?? Not a chance. Surrender how for what to who when why.

    2. So you want to do more mature stuff? Darker themes? You're so hard to please.

    3. I have no agenda except the stories themselves. I love being in thrall to where they go and I swear I do not lead. I am not good enough to make up Haru Sakura. It's serendipity does it. Looking for Sakura is what led this time, that and needing the Japanese for spring because of Sakura.

  2. Hey I know you can't help but follow the muse. I do it all the time. :D

  3. It is like looking behind the curtain at the "wizard" in Oz. Very nice!

  4. Wow. I think it's interesting when someone pulls back the curtain and shows what's behind the creation of the character. I like that.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
