Cherry Tree I by Marina Soria

Original text in Spanish by the author: English translation: "Her mind was empty, her senses attentive, her breath rhythmic. She leaned on her back over the green carpet. Light slightly filtered through the cherry tree leaves. Like in an impressionist painting, the sky and the green interlaced. Her silk kimono caressed her legs and the drawings, those which she had carefully embroidered, started rising from the fabric to float in a secret dance over her motionless body. A sound of water running could be heard from afar like a monotonous music, and the smell from the grass, together with the sweet tatami cherry, drove her to another world. At this time, or centuries before, two women interweave the same dreams underneath the shadow of the same cherry tree."
