Snow sakura

sakura cherry blossoms in the april snow

We woke up to about 15cm of snow yesterday morning. No doubt the sight of the cherry blossoms covered in snow would have inspired Basho to a magnificent haiku.

Instead of embarrassing myself by attempting to write one myself, I googled "snow cherry haiku" and came up with this haiku found here:

white snow encircles
the bare twigs in the orchards:
cold cherry blossoms
