Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge Cherry Blossoms fall by Shirao

Here is the haiku, the first stanza, by Shirao:

hito koishi hitoboshi koro wo sakura chiru

yearning fills my heart
when the candles are lit;
Cherry blossoms fall“

i. 
Still radiant in colour
Perishing to be reborn

ii. 
Sudden darkness enlightens
Mind becomes an empty cup

  3. I like both your completions Lothar, but your second is really great ... and very spiritual
