Beautiful spring blossom photographed on a luxury gold background basking in natural light.
This tree lives in my garden, it is barley noticeable throughout the year but as spring emerges it bursts into life. This year I sat with it I burnt special incense and asked if I could take a branch and share its beauty with the world.
“Bitter winter winds –
in the garden the sleeping
cherry blossoms wait
for spring sun to awaken –
I can only dream.”
Death Poem of Masashi Kenata – 1538 – 1580
