In celebration of spring, a welcome to new life and beauty!

Cherry Blossom Days



Ah, overnight, pink pillows

appeared by the wall.

So fragile, so sweet.


The small birds peck at

the cherry blossom,

my heart dances with pleasure.


In Finland they call it

‘bird-cherry’, in Japan

time to drink sake.


Let’s lie under the

flowers of a cherry tree

as life is renewed.
