Blossoms appear in the land,
the time for singing has come,
---Song of Songs 2:12
Rather, gently lowered in ephemeral corsages gracing the branches.
Where yesterday there was one or two blossoms, today there are these draped clusters.
People are everywhere looking up.
The canopy is forming over the nation,
God`s chuppah * spreading over Japan!!
It feels like a wedding!
*A chuppah is a wedding canopy, the Hebrew word for the canopy that the bride and groom stand under when they marry.
