Sakura (Hope for Japan)

Updated on May 19, 2015



Temporal beauty


I am awed by the majestic beauty of the Sakura, after the Tsunami that hit Japan, I was inspired to write a poem about it...That after all the fiasco, they can revive and start a new life.

The people are grief stricken

The earth has always been shaken

The lights are dimmed and out

They can do nothing but pout

Amidst the rubbles, there rises

A very beautiful thing that stretches

Bathed in the glow of the light

Might behold it, what a sight!

Alas! Tis but just temporal

A week’s worth, yet, ethereal

Enjoy it, while it’s there

It surely creates a convivial atmosphere

The Sakura is just but fleeting

Still it brings joy to a being

It reminds us, whatever obstacles barging

Predicaments that are barraging

If there’s a will, there’s a way

As an adage says

Whatever may come forth

Solutions underneath its worth
