Amid these difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic, let us not lose heart, and be confident that the darkest winter will definitely turn to spring. Let’s stay home and stay positive during this circuit breaker period.

The following is excerpts from the poem “Falling Cherry Blossoms” that SGI President Ikeda has written on seeing the cherry trees blossoming amid the burned-out ruins of war.

Surviving

The disaster of war

To bloom

Cherry blossoms

Against the blue sky

Petals fluttering

 

… … …

 

O fallen cherry blossom

Blossoms that remain!

Forever

Bloom fragrantly

In stormy profusion

In spring.

 

… … …

(New Human Revolution Vol 1, “Light of Compassion” Chapter)
