a ray of sunlight
slanting through the golden trees
autumn is coming
Chilly wind blowing
snow covered the barren fields
winter is here again
snowdrops and crocus
blue grape hyacinths blooming
early spring greetings
There was a Cherry Tree in my garden before. In spring, it was covered with fluffy pink blossoms that dance happily in the breeze. They say Sakura is an omen of good fortune and an emblem for love and affection. It embodies spring like no other tree. It flowers might be short-lived but they remind us of a fleeting nature of life.
I loved to lie beneath the gentle shower of pink petals floating softly to the ground. Sakura is my namesake. Pity that the tree is no longer there. A violent storm ripped it off from the ground… But it will be forever in my memory, all the times I spent reading books under it will not be forgotten. I have pictures to remind me of those happy moments…
Reminds me of this haiku by Kobayashi Issa
“What a strange thing!
to be alive
beneath cherry blossoms.”
To write an entire post without using any three-letter words, tricky. But there is no harm in trying. Let’s seek the easy way and do some Haiku…
Dark bare trees outside
Storm in my head raging on
Ghosts of past lives dance…
