hanami - enjoying the beauty of flowers
quiet streets of kyoto city
pairs, old men and women, young ones
are wearing kimonos - in the park and subway,
on the train station, everywhere. so beautiful.
it is very hard to pick the right candy
green kitchen. nanohana is blooming
and boys were running back and forth
with the stems and leaves. girls were
waiting in the sand box.
there was a huge old sakura on the river bank
and a little girl, picking up petals and flowers from
the ground in a plastic bag.
i love how past meets future in japan.
they were standing on the bridge for a long time,
looking at the river - mother with a baby and a son.
she hold a belt and it was buckled to his bear backpack.
water shivering and clear, not deep enough to hide every
fish that swims by and every little pebble.
it is already summer in kyoto
children from different lands. africa
