about the folksong

Why “sakura”?

Sakura, or “cherry blossom,” is the epitome of the Japanese notion of transient beauty in the world, referred to as “mono no aware.” Beauty is not a fixed state of being as Westerners like to imagine it, purchasable and capturable and able to be clenched forever in one’s iron grip, but rather the fleeting transcience of moving life experienced in the Now by the heart and mind of the observer, simultaneously enjoyed and mourned as the moment passes.
