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?

    • AshiAkira says:

      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.

    Lovely, simply lovely!

  4. 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!

    Thank-you, Ashi
