_______________________ Cherry blossoms are the most beloved flower of the Japanese people. They bloom for a brief time and are very fragile, symbolizing the transience of life; this symbolism harmonizes well Buddhist teachings. Masses of cherry blossoms are used as metaphors for clouds. Falling cherry blossoms are likened to snow, and are used as a metaphor for a warrior killed in his youth. _______________________
