A lone cherry tree
In full bloom one is enough
In the city park
Are you talking about Sakura, Ashi? And about Hanami? About the festival and about looking?
People here usually have hanami (cherry blossoms viewing party) at a place where there are many sakura (cherry) trees when they are in full bloom. But in such a place as a city park (a small park in a business district in a city) they can’t have many trees. But just a single cherry tree can burst into a mountain of blossoms and would be enough for people to have such a party, and they can still enjoy the hanami spirit all the same for a short period of time during, say, office workers’ lunch time. This is part of life for the people living in a crowded city.
That’s so nice, Ashi 🙂
I’m waiting to have my own hanami in Bucharest Botanical Garden. We have there a few sakura. When I will have my hanami I will feel like in Japan 🙂
Be sure to take a lunch box with you. 🙂
I will, Ashi 🙂
But I’m sure that their fragrance and beauty will fill me enough ❤
Good for you! 🙂
Lovely, simply lovely!
Thank you. 🙂
When I first went away to school, one big elm branch pushed against the window by my bed. Whenever I wanted to be in the tree, I just lay down on my bed and gazed at the branch on the other side of the glass until I could feel the leaves blowing against my skin.
So I think that sometimes even one branch is enough!
We have a saying that goes something like, “One comes to know of the autumn of the entire world by seeing the fall of a single tree leave.” I think this is a link between nature and our mind. 🙂
