epitome of beauty?

in my lit class today, we talked about how sakura are like the epitome of beauty and how beauty is so fleeting, because all the flowers fall off while in the height of bloom (usually within 3-4 days of first bloom) and never turn brown and ugly.

some food for thought...

also sakura related but on a different note, i ate sakura-flavored soft cream (aka soft serve) the other day and it was delicious! =)
