cherry bloom



Carpe Diem Sparkling Stars # 21, Buson's "I came to the cherry blossoms"

I came to the cherry blossoms;
I slept beneath them;
this was my leisure

finally dreams become true
just one peaceful spring night -
blossoms of cherry bloom

awake!
sunrise brings a surprise
cherry tree blossoms

buzzed by the cherry nectar
bees circle honeysuckle 

sun drenched cherry blooms
intoxicating perfume
senses aroused!

lovers entwined in embrace
startled by impassioned sting
