Cherry Blossom

The cherry blossom has arrived this week. Hurray. The world is spinning towards the sun and spring is starting to arrive. If I lived in Japan perhaps I would be getting ready to go blossom watching and light paper lanterns at night but as this is the north of England it will not be such an event. Perhaps a haiku from the Zen master Basho will do instead

Spring night
cherry -
blossom dawn

Lets hope for another sunny day to see the fragile beauty of this flower at its best although it does brighten a rainy day.
