Delicate Cherry Blossoms

The poetic beauty of the flowering cherry trees are a rite of spring. The sight of the delicate blossoms and their intoxicating effect on the people make for a wonderful experience. The blossoms last but for a few days, their exuberant burst of beauty cut short by the slightest wind and rain. This only adds to the experience, as this poignant combination of beauty and sadness is deeply appreciated and widely revered.
