Growing in Place with Mark Nepo – The Cherry Blossoms

How Do You See the Cherry Blossoms?

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Today I’m offering one of my favorite haikus by the Japanese poet Kikakou, The Cherry Blossoms, and then lead a short meditation. I’m also inspired to share a poem of mine “At the Window” from The Way Under the Way: from the The Place of True Meeting. Hope you are doing well. Thanks for joining me. I wish you peace.
