Sakura - Spring 2019

The Fragility of Existence

Japan
Cherry blossoms called Sakura,
Symbolic flowers of spring,
spreading their beauty for single days,
the fleeting nature of life.

Life
Fragile and overwhelmingly beautiful,
tragically short.
Petals a timeless metaphor for human existence,
the themes of our lives...
life, mindfulness, mortality and death.

Marvel
at our own passing time on earth
with joy and passion.
Let’s not neglect to revel in life
when it can end at any moment.

Graces
surrounding us everywhere:
family, friends, a stranger’s smile,
a child’s laugh,
new flavours on our plate
the scent of green grass...

Sakura
is signaling the beginning of spring,
a time of renewal and optimism.
hope and new dreams.

Seize
the day and wring the beauty out of life,
reflect on our own precious lives.
