powdery pink

9 Apr

A cloudy day.

You can barely tell

where the border of

the sky

and the blossoms is.

Tokyo Black (porter)

pretty good beer.

Maybe the thickest beer I’ve had

since I got back from the States.

I love swan boat…

It was a better exercise than I thought, though.

(…but I love it!)

When was the last time

I saw cherry blossoms in Japan?


When the wind blows

and when the petals float in the air,

it makes me want to cry.

I’d forgotten that feeling.

Now, I remember it again.


I’m very glad

I went out to witness

the beginning of spring.

I know I still have a lot of work to do…

But a little break is alright, right?

    Thank you for the beautiful pictures. I wonder if these are Prunus yedoensis ‘Akebono’. It is my favorite with big white blossoms with pink centers that fade to that pale, pale dusty rose color. Love it!
