Sakura

The Sakura stands before me.
“Ebb and flow” the petals hushed,
dancing in the warm breeze.
Pay attention, Samurai —
Battle may come at any moment,
winter shall return in a heartbeat.
Is your heart permeable to the present
as your soul is permanent?
If you fall, fall graciously,
like soft pink petals swaying.
Stay open.
