Here Comes the Sun

Blue skies have been rare these past few weeks, but a change is in the air, it is finally warming and feels like Spring is finally here. The Plum Blossoms seem to think so

And a ku to go along with it:

truly to know plum blossoms
needs your heart
as well as your nose
—Onitsura
(trans. Stephen Addiss)[1]

The plum blossoms smell nearly as nice as they look, maybe even better!


  1. Yes, translation not by me this time. I actually don't know the original Japanese for this one. Addiss didn't give it in his book. Oh well. His translation is rather nice though, isn't it?
