The weather is very fickle in this season, but it has been warm and fine these days. In my garden Japanese Andromeda bloomed and began to fade away.
And I found the wild violet this morning by the shrub of the Japanese Andromeda.
It was really fine day last Thursday.
My husband went out for viewing cherry blossoms with his friends.
They are always searching for some reason and occasion for drinking and eating.
|Cherry blossoms near my house were in full bloom last week.|
I could not resist my impulse to go out in the sunshine ,so I took a train bound for Kyoto shortly after, remembering that I happened to see a magical picture of weeping cherry blossoms along Kamogawa river in Kyoto.
The colour of the blossoms were pink-red and each flower looked a little bigger than that of common cherry flower called Somei-yoshino which are seen in the above picture.
On earth how many sort of cherry blossoms are there. I know the names of only a few.
The blossoms came into sight just like the picture I saw, hanging the branches on a basket- like arch and bathing spring brilliant sunlight. This district is called Nakaragi(半木）.
Some are pushing their baby cars and some are doing the same for wheelchairs, and every one looks happy.
It was relaxing time, and I thought as if I could take a long long walk along the river.
But now it was time to return, for I did not leave any message for my husband because I left home impulsively.
sha-ri, sha-ri, sha-ri,,,
bits of glass were falling
inside of the recycling plant
and by the gate
cherry blossoms are fully in bloom
I composed this tanka last spring, walking along a river which was closer to my residence.
I was caught by a strange sensation when I heard such a sound like glass breaking and were littering somewhere in the factory and I saw some cherry blossoms as they were reborn in front of the recycling plant.
Cherry blossoms make me feel some mysterious power.
It is supposed that they were at their peak last weekend.
