Look at the cherry blossoms!
Their color and scent fall with them,
Are gone forever,
The spring comes again.
– Ikkyu –
The magical rebirth, and breathtaking beauty of spring is unfolding in front of my eyes. Here in the north, spring usually sweeps past in a heartbeat. We won’t even know what’s happened until it’s turned into full-blown summer once again. Every second, every precious moment of this season is worth admiration. I’m breathing it in with my body and soul! Hats off – I and the natural world around me made it through another long and dark winter!
This is my take on this week’s photo challenge: ADMIRATION.
