She hid away her colors in the frail, fragrant flower petals. Her radiance that once so bright, forgotten and taken from your sight. The long lost splendor, the missed glorious moments. Her brilliant wild joined the joyous, unceasing winds.
🌸A Parting Gift🌸
"Hanafubuki" is the Japanese word that describes the beautiful moment when cherry blossom petals float down on the wind, like snowflakes in a blizzard. “Hana” means flower and “fubuki” means snow storm.
A quick change of weather brought me to stare outside the window Standing near the porch, I was then surprised to see snow falling Almost a month when cherry blossoms began to say hello Here comes a chilling wind and a surprise snowfall in spring Hearing its sound, a thread of sad memories began to flow This pushed me back to the hour of pain, strain, and self-blaming Worried about the blossoms and pretty wild flowers in the meadow, I looked around and saw green grass and birds happily chirping Oh! the woods smell sweet, snow becomes rains and the little stream flows And everywhere I turn around, I see hope in everything Plus who among us would not care, cherish and will not go To admire a lovely tree where blossoms are hung with snow in spring
She stood there naked almost all throughout the year Enslaved by the chilling winds, captured by the gloom of winter Though she never got tired of waiting for the sun to rouse from a lengthy sleep Reaching up the clouds, she raised her tiny brittle arms and began to weep
I was a witness to her silent suppressed feeling and pain But I was scared to show her that I also wallow in vain Then I saw her yesterday with the warm breeze caressing her blushing cheeks I just wished she felt my joy, the freedom from the frigid knot is indeed to celebrate
Her beauty now flourishes in her pink and silky gown Her smile glitters and she glows like a princess with a gorgeous crimson crown Again I am a witness to her glorious happiness and content Though nervous of the ceremony that might soon begin to fade
