Shidare-zakura (weeping cherry) flowers: Kencho-ji

Shidare-zakura (weeping cherry) flowers: Kencho-ji

According to the law of the universe, the life on the earth keeps circulating and transforming ceaselessly, changing its name and form in various ways without a moment of stagnation.

Flowers bloom and disappear one after another, enlightening us on the constant and rapid transition of the seasons. 

Beside the Hatto (lecture hall) of this temple, an old weeping cherry-tree is once again bearing lots of rose-colored flowers on its thin cascading branches. Soon, these graceful flowers will scatter all together in the spring breeze and countless fresh green leaves will emerge rapidly to erase the memory of these fleeting flowers.
