Inspiration Behind:

I was inspired by the profound beauty and symbolism of cherry blossoms in Japanese culture. The way they signify both the ephemeral nature of life and the beauty of the moment really moved me. I imagined standing under a cherry blossom tree, feeling the soft breeze and watching the delicate petals fall. This imagery led me to ponder the cycles of life and the promises we make under the canopy of blooming flowers. I wanted to capture the serene and hopeful essence that cherry blossoms represent, along with the universal yearning for a bright future. The peacefulness of dawn and the silent guardianship of the stars added a layer of tranquility and depth to the poem’s atmosphere.

Relaying this poem into English

Song of the Cherry Blossoms

Cherry blossoms dance in the sky,
I saw a dream of them, fleeting, passing by.
Carried afar on the spring breeze's sigh,
Till the color of hope shines, oh so high.

Beneath the white clouds, 'neath the azure sky,
New vows are made where the cherry blossoms lie.
Beyond time, our hearts connect, you and I,
Gentle yet strong, like the flowers, we defy.

Before the dawn, in the quiet of the night,
As if the stars themselves keep them in sight,
Each cherry blossom, in its own right,
Lights up the future, with life so bright.
