Basho’s ‘A Lovely Spring Night…’

A lovely spring night,

suddenly vanished while we

viewed cherry blossoms.

A lovely spring night…, by Joshua Barrera, metallic ink on paper, 8.5 x 11”, 2021.

I felt like drawing something simple yet magical – the cherry blossoms as a spectacle of fleeting beauty and memory. It’s all about cherishing those little precious moments in life. This piece is inspired by Basho’s haiku, and hanami (flower viewing).
