Every year, the sakura – or Japanese cherry blossoms –
Spread pretty pops of pink elation in downtown Stockholm.
They hang like
Petalled bunches from the trees;
Clouds of blossoms in the sky;
Float in the air
Like pink tutus;
And remind us
That life, like the cherry blossom,
Is fragile, fleeting and beautiful.
