Carpe Diem Tokubetsudesu #79 Looking Back In Time … “Sparkling Stars”

hana chirite shizuka ni narinu hito-gokoro

the blossoms have fallen:
our minds are now
tranquil

cherry1

even while I sleep
petals scatter magically
making the dawn pink

 

cherry2

 

pink petals scatter
\carried on moonlight and wind
cherry tree left bare

 

cherry3

 

the last petals fall
tranquility flourishes
sleep returns once more

 

cherry4

 

cherry blossom nights
pink skin glowing in moonlight
tranquility fall
