Love Flower Poems: Day 11
Here's one by a famous haiku poet, although -- correct me if I'm wrong -- I think this one has too many syllables to be a true haiku. Maybe it did before it was translated into English. I also used this poem as an epigraph for a section of Forget-Her-Nots. As someone who sees the cherry trees bloom every year in Washington, D.C, I know exactly what the poet means. The presence of beauty can transform us.[For this one, there is no title and this is the whole poem, so simply find the poet's name.]"In the cherry blossom's shade there's no such thingas a stranger."
