I feel something of soft touch.
The voice of the time. The snowy beating. The ancestral soul.
The words cannot get them.
The temple is covered with a silver hat.
There were them there all the time from the ancient times.
They have been living while protecting something.
It is the life.
The lovely hometown.
The long history. And short breath.
Please watching over us.
Here is Shirakawa village, Gifu Prefecture.

Loneliness adds to the mountain village still more during winter. The person and grass wither away.
