Exquisite beauty

Exquisite beauty

I wish that I could describe the exquisite beauty of the sakura.  But mere words will never be enough.  I can’t explain the swelling in my heart when I see the delicate blooms swaying gently on the end of a branch.  Or the bittersweetness of the petals wafting down, carried along by the breeze.  Long after I leave Japan, and sights and sounds are fading from my memory, I hope that I will still be able to recall these beautiful sights and the overwhelming emotions that accompanied them.
