Summer

 

Are we to look at cherry blossoms only in full bloom,
at the moon only when it is cloudless? To long for the
moon while looking on the rain, to lower the blinds
and be unaware of the passing of the spring — these are
even more deeply moving. Branches about to blossom
or gardens strewn with faded flowers are worthier of
our admiration.
