Did you have a chance to enjoy the beautiful cherry blossoms this year? The weather was perfect yesterday and the blossoms were at their peak. I went cycling down Taihei River, Hitotsumori Park and through Senshu Park.
Today, I want you to become a poet. Using “like” or “as”, compare the cherry blossoms to something. This is very common in Haiku. Here are a few of my tries.
The blossoms looked like popcorn popping on the trees.
It was like a gentle snowfall of petals.
The blossoms were as white as snow.
The tree looked like a great big dandelion puff.
It looked as delicious as the cotton candy if the hands of the child below.
Here are a few photos from yesterday. I look forward to hearing about your cherry blossom viewing this year. I’ll add some of the best comparisons from my students here next week.
