in cherry blossom shade
there are even those
who hate this world
Spring has arrived, as is witnessed by the massive amounts of cherry blossoms and buds littering the sky. Overwhelmed by the beauty, I took my camera out for a spin and captured the fleeting allure of the pink petals that have captivated many generations the world over.
Cherry blossom life is so short that you have to stop, sit, and stare to fully appreciate their delicate mortality, and in turn, your own. Even a swift gust of wind is enough to strip naked tree trunks that once held a bevy of beauty.
