Cherry Tree Petals make way to a fated encounter.

Japan is known for the beautiful blooming cherry trees and the subsequent viewings of such an event.
A long time ago, going under the cherry trees while the beautiful petals were falling was considered dangerous, as one could risk insanity and the laws of physics could bend as the physical form could dissolve and somehow create an open way to the unexplained and the impossible to convey by common sense.

Cherry blossom petals become witnesses as they dance in the wind to the moment where a burning gaze troubles the most serene surface of water.

“Cherry Trees blossom
Petals swirl perilously
Befallen folly”

In our own haiku and illustration we represent the moment the cherry petals have done their deed and sealed the encounter of two people – the viewer, carrying a burning gaze and the girl, whose surface has been disturbed- we are left with the freedom to wonder what will happen next.
