Things are just about to burst into flower in DC.
A few haiku of Basho to observe the joys of the season…
A cloud of cherry blossoms;
The temple bell,－
Is it Ueno, is it Asakusa?
How many, many things
They call to mind
Very brief –
Gleam of blossoms in the treetops
On a moonlit night.
Some more here, on a site called The Culture Trip.
And a print from the Met on the the same theme…
