Cherry blossoms

June 19, 2012 2 comments

Cherry blossoms symbolize the arrival of spring, prosperity and joy.

In Japan, cherry trees, called “sakura,” and cherry blossom flowers  are held in high regard.  The Japanese people celebrate hanami annually. Hanami is basically parties organized to view blossoming cherry trees.  They also symbolize innocence and simplicity.

We can all be like the cherry blossoms.  Let us sow the seeds of positive thoughts in our minds so that there is a bountiful spring. Let us spend some time every day in introspection and improving the quality of our thoughts, reducing the quantity of our thoughts and directing our thoughts to a higher ideal!

Blossoming flowers and fresh greens
Welcome Spring – the season of joy
Shedding all inhibitions
People step out into the open

Water pistols in hand
Colour packets in pockets
Holi unfolds in the streets
A riot of colours

A time to bond
To smile, to hug
Colour each other
Like kids in gay abandon

The crowds break into dance
Holi Hai, Holi Hai
Vibrant joy and emotion
Wipe off tears and distress

Painted in colours of love
All look the same
An atmosphere of frolic
And a feeling of oneness

Roses, tulips bloom
Birds sing the onset of spring
Kites flutter in the breeze
