It has been a good week conducting a class. It was encouraging, too, because students all faced my way all the while. I am tired, but it is a nice kind of fatigue.
During the week, the season has shifted a little, Sakura flowers are mostly gone, turning the pavements to carpets with fallen petals.
Sakura is an intersting tree. The blossoms bloom first and then the young leaves appear. Sakura treees with full bloosom are like a fanfare announcing the arrival of spring. Young leaves that follow are the guides who show us the following seasons. Light green for spring and early summer, dark green for summer, yellow and red for autumn, and brown for winter.
Sakura tree whispering
to a bird on a branch
"I'll be with you all the time"
