The campus comes to life.
The dew is still dozing on the pistil.
Yet the bees have already got down to work.
The sky is clearing up, breathing the cool morning air.
The sun is climbing.
The warm sunlight passes through the branch and kisses every petal good morning.
The cloudless sky is clear and bright.
The cherry in full bloom never fails to attract the sight of the hurrying students passing by.
The midday beam gives the petal a gilt edge.
The branches and petals are dancing in the warm breeze.
The blazing beam turns mellow and dyes the blossom lingering gold.
The sun is gone. The students finish their course and the bustling campus falls into serenity.
The road lamps on.
The mottled light and the blossom add radiance and beauty to each other.
The night is pressing up.
Yet the dark night sky never shuts up the beauty of the cherry blossom under the sparkling stars.
