Cherry blossoms in waka poetry

This article, titled The Cherry Blossom in Heian Waka Poetry sheds more light on both the significance of the cherry tree to Japanese culture and how poets wrote about it. The nature of the tree, the diffused shade it casts when in bloom, how the petals fall and the wind all play important roles in the theme of cherry blossom poetry.   Inspirational food for thought!
