Cherry blossoms are one of the most popular flowers, representing the spring season in Japan. There are hundreds of types of cherry blossoms that come in different color, size, and shapes. Many cherry blossom petals are white, pale pink, or dark pink. They bloom for about one to two weeks mainly starting in March, ending in April depending on the location.
During the peak blooming season, people in Japan have picnics or ‘flower watching’ (ohanami) by the cherry blossom trees in parks and along the rivers, enjoying the brief blooming period as the petals fall through the air. Another reason to enjoy is the presence of coumarin, a fragrant organic chemical that gives the cherry blossom a wonderful aroma that brings a sense of relaxation and the sign of spring’s arrival.
“It is true, as they say, that the blossoms of spring are all the more precious because they bloom so briefly.”
The poem was written by Murasaki Shikibu, a Japanese novelist, poet and lady-in-waiting at the Imperial court during the Heian Period (794 - 1185). The poem expresses the short but beautiful lifespan of the blooming flowers, referring to cherry blossoms, that is similar to human life which is also short and beautiful. In the Buddhist beliefs, cherry blossoms symbolize impermanence, rebirth, and life’s transience.
