Petals

The sakura exhibition is finally over. Its petals, drizzling in the city, were the confetti. Mother Earth knows how to put up a show, a seasoned conductor. For the past two weeks, pink canopies covered the city to the delight of tourists and locals. Their arrival was earlier than what was forecasted but the audience did not mind at all.

Thinking that this weekend would be sakura's last performance after an extended run, we went to the nearest park in Chiba, took the front seats and witness its farewell show. The wind, the rain signaled that everything's ending on a high note. 

It was a cold ending though.

  9. It's cherry blossom time in April around the world (but not in Houston, we are too warm a climate). I love the way the come out in Washington, D.C. and in London.

    Back in the 50's we had this song, the music was played on a trumpet:

    It's cherry pink and apple blossom white
    When your true lover comes your way
    It's cherry pink and apple blossom white

    The poets say
    The story goes that once a cherry tree
    Beside an apple tree did grow
    And there a boy once met his bride to be
    Long long ago

    The boy looked into her eyes,
    it was a sight to enthrall
    The breezes joined in their sighs,
    the blossoms started to fall

    And as they gently carressed,
    the lovers looked up to find
    The branches of the two trees were intertwined

    And that is why the poets always write
    If there's a new moon bright above
    It's cherry pink and apple blossom white
    When you're in love

  11. I really envy your photography skills. Or perhaps I shouldn't be envious but rather be inspired by your work. I hope I can be as great as you in terms of taking photos. I am just a neophyte when it comes to photography and I want to learn more of/from it.
