Whenever the east wind blows #1

Posted by
Hiro (Kyoto, Japan) on 3 March 2015 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Whenever the east wind blows, my dear plum blossoms remember spring, even if your master won't be here.
This is an English translation of a famous 和歌 Japanese poetry by 菅原道真 Sugawara Michizane(845-903).
It is said that this poetry was composed when he was banished from the Capital Kyoto by political opponent. He loved plum blossoms so much.
