Sweet time Ⅱ with " Wind " Japanese calligraphy

   The solitude softly brushes my cheeks.
   No, it's imagination.

   Only a shadow stands.

   My sense has passed.
   So, and nothing is left.

   The dry wind shakes hair.

   I hope that there is just you.
   The time has flowed.
   ... The small boat drifts between ripples.

   Here is Genkai-chō, Higashi-matsuura District, Saga Prefecture.

     あつさりと  春はきにけり  浅黄空
      小林 一茶  (1763 - 1827)

     All too soon  spring has come  light yellow sky
      Kobayashi Issa  (1763 - 1827)

   "" (fū, kaze). It is translated as wind, air, manners, atmosphere, etc.
   This character is written by Kanzi, Regular script.

   Etymology : Phono-semantic compound
   凡 (all)  +  虫 (insects)

   The whisper of the wind.
   The tone of the insect.

   I sometimes forget them.
   Though they always stay in there.

   I do not notice it.
   The Nature is gentle for all.

    世の中は 常にもがもな 渚こぐ あまの小船の 綱手かなしも
      鎌倉右大臣 ( 源実朝 ) (1192 - 1219)

    I hope this world never changes.
     The fisherman rows a small boat in shore, deeply impressive.
      Minamoto no Sanetomo   (1192 - 1219) 

  The human being might have allowed itself to the destiny in the joy and sorrow. 
  The place of my photography is the same as this movie (about June).
  Here is the scenery which doesn't change for several hundred years.

  A man-made constructions were only built before 40 years ago.
    It's a Nuclear・Power・Plant.

  So, it may be safe. Who knows ?
  This nature will be kept in good condition.


Please your Click support. Thank you.

    A true poet of nature,

  53. To live a life like that may not be a life of ease and comfort, but it's a life of blessing and significance. It's astonishing what Nature and Man can do together, as long as they are part of each other!
    After seeing the video and reading your words, I have a strong feeling that it is imperative for us to rediscover the long-lost bond and the wisdom that used to keep us together...

    Felicitaciones, el mar es nuestra cuna esencial y primaria

    un abrazo y un gusto leerte por mi rincón
    hacía tiempo que no nos comunicábamos
    que esta vuelta sea por más tiempo y las lecturas sean fructíferas :)

  75. Preciosas imágenes que trasmiten paz.

  76. Las fotos como siempre estupendas.

    Saludos y un abrazo.

  77. Wyspa w tle niesamowita. Nie znam angielskiego ani japońskiego, więc nie wiem o czym piszesz. Musi być to związane z historią. Jednak o historii Japonii wiem tyle co z filmów Kurosawy. Pewnie ty jeszcze mniej o historii Polski. Muszę poprosić córkę o tłumaczenie Twojego bloga, ponieważ zna angielski i uczy się japońskiego. Mieszkasz w pięknym i dla nas orientalnym kraju. W Polsce często spotyka się Japończyków na wycieczkach.

  78. Congratulations for the shots, they're so beautifuls!
    and thank you so much for you comment, I'm so glad to read it.
    Have a good weekend.

  79. mil gracias querida y admirada poetisa por acariciar nuestra alma con tan magna belleza, muchos besinos con todo mi cariño y feliz domingo.

  80. Dear Ruma, The murmur of the wind and tone of insects with the landscapes in your stunning photographs and that of the video are all embracing our world. Reflections might make us pause and be cautious of how we harness energy and potentially and in reality harm our earth and thus ourselves. My heart sighs for other land . . . your country and ours . . . the world over. We must stop using Nuclear Power. Thank you for sharing your words and language along with breathtaking imagery. Hugs from Massachusetts. Carol

  81. Thank you Ruma, again, for sharing with us your beautiful photo's, words and sounds! It is amazing and I love it!
