Carpe Diem Special #28 – Onitsura #4

23 Mar

carpet

saku-karani miru-karani hana no chiru-karani

the cherry-flowers bloom;

we gaze at them;
they fall, and …

Onitsura (1660-1738)

==========================

river of petals

carelessly crushed under foot

beauty is fleeting

    The beauty of the crushed petals is very different I suppose as it mixes with the colors of Earth.
