Cherry petals dancing

Cherry petals dancing

Blown by the wind like a storm

Some into my mouth

      Thank you. I’m glad you liked it. Here is what often happens:

      A tea party under a huge cherry tree
      In full bloom with a mountain of flowers
      Petals dancing in the air with the spring breeze
      One of them flies into your teacup

      Make your wish
      Better hurry like you have just seen a falling star
      Someone across from you notices it in your cup
      Floating in your tea

      He smiles at you and you smile back
      Whatever your wish
      It will come true
      It is destined to come true

      Billions of people on the globe
      They all have wishes
      We are all born equal
      May take some while, but your turn will come

      A wish is destined to come true
