Cherry Blossoms in the Air - Poetry and Photography

Good morning, Cherry Blossoms

My tears froze like icicles in the constant breath of winter

My feet calloused, bravely holding strong to the ground;

My arms stretched trembling begging of the forbidden chance

The last touch to my cheek, soft petal pale by the polar cold.


I abide and sleep off the passing nights and days

Slumber stiff, wrinkled underneath a bed of snow;

In tranquil moments I may spend my life waiting

An outpour of rain, an angel freely aiding, giving.


Alas, I am awake fresh on a new day in April,

A fearsome beginning, I shyly bloom, opening up my soul;

Giving thanks to the lively bighearted, warmhearted sun

Kissing my sweet bleached cheeks glistening in the air.


I gaze upon my visiting admirers young and old

Sparkling fragrance, my body enshroud by its beauty;

Voiceless I am, but singing birds drop me a song

Jubilant and starry-eyed, happily they flap their wings.


"Cherry Blossoms", a pretty cheerful name I am called

"Sakura" in Japanese, I am beatified, spoken to by many;

Pastel whites, pinks, purples I burst fast like the painted cotton clouds

Today, gracefully and lovely, we fairly share a harmonious gift of beauty.

English lyrics to the song "Sakura Sakura" Cherry Blossoms. It is short and easy to memorize.

Lyrics in English (the Cherry Blossom song)

I

Sakura ♥ Sakura, blossoms waving everywhere
Clouds of glory fill the sky
Mist of beauty in the air,
lovely colors floating by
Sakura ♥ Sakura,
Let all come singing.

II

Sakura ♥ Sakura,
Blossoms waving in the breeze
Yoshina, the cherry land,
Tatsuta, the maple trees,
Karasaki, pine tree grand,
Sakura ♥ Sakura,
let all come singing.

Repeat I & II

      Hello there davenmidtown! I am glad that you found this hub. Thank you so much for your kind words. You know, I was getting moody to get to the park where these Cherry Blossoms were exploding. I didn't get there on the first day and learning about it only after the 4th day the trees were in full bloom. I was in the park 7 days after, plus with only my cellphone camera. At least, the visit was really early in the morning, the park was quiet and peaceful!

      Once again, thank you!
