And be led out with peace;
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands." Isaiah 55
This is the song I had in mind as I walked along the street decked with four white cherry trees all in full 満開 bloom. They have broken forth, singing! They danced in the sun, casting silvery shadows on one another. It is incredible to think that such tough, wooded bodies could give birth to delicate wings.
"Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." Luke 12:27
