There is a giant tree in front of the house I moved into last summer. This tree that seems
dozens of years old displays luxuriant foliage in summer, but shows its bare branches after
shedding all its leaves in winter. As it has become bright with the light that comes in through
the branches, my cat takes a nap on the couch by the window. Spring has come round again,
and the tree blooms with all its might.

This was a magnolia. Its blossoming flowers that endured winter were brilliant. Their beauty,
however, was short-lived due to spring rain. The flowers fell to the ground. Although all living
things are destined to come into being, grow and disappear, their moment of brightness and life was so regrettably short. Iโ€™d like to capture this brief, beautiful moment in a picture.

I picked up a flower fallen to the ground. The flower begins to wither from the moment it
separates from a branch. Its sleek petals wrinkle like an old manโ€™s skin and its milky white turns murky. I feel heavy-hearted and solemn as if witnessing someoneโ€™s death.

When I again saw this tree several months later, it came into bearing, embracing life again.
