The Sakura

starlit morning
the voice of spring
in the waterfall


a sudden earthquake
sucks in dreams


swept aside
in an ocean’s rage –
the sakura


each wave
a rising death alarm, each fear
a tsunami


white masks
even on the babies


aspirations
like rainbows across the sky ...
tomorrow is another day
