Bonsai Daybreak Reflection


 Night rain mixed with the sleet gets the Japanese apricot wet. 
Delicate colors seem to be polished still more.

 Shine of the dawn lets me feel drops of water coolly.


It is the rare bonsai which pink and snow-white flower are mixed, and bloom. 
Fallen petals make up a base.

Thank you for your visit, always.  
I am grateful for your support.

I love you.
sincerely yours.
