The pale and deep color with " Pure " Japanese calligraphy



   The splendor such as the stage costume.
   And delicate.

   The vanity hides behind in the backside.






   I can recognize only one side.
   Though both exist.

   It may be my immaturity.







   Pure and innocent.
   The life is dazzling.

   At this moment.



    野あやめの 離れては濃く 群れて淡し
     水原 秋桜子 (1892 - 1981)

    Wild iris scattered deep color herding pale color 
     Mizuhara Shūōshi (1892 - 1981)





   "清" (sei, or kiyoi). It is translated as clear, pure, clean, peaceful, etc.
   This character is written by Kanzi, Regular script. 


   Etymology : Phono-semantic compound
   氵 (water) +  青 (blue)


    花ひとつ 折れて流るゝ 菖蒲かな
     正岡 子規  (1867 - 1902) 

    one flower broke and flowing just iris 
     Masaoka Shiki  (1867 - 1902) 

   Blue sea and sky.
   unlimited and clean.

   It is Utopia.

   Please enjoy the state of a traditional wedding ceremony of Japan in this movie.

    あやめ草 ふくや皐月のながきひに しばしをやまぬ 軒の玉水
     藤原 定家 (1162 – 1241)

   Japan is the rainy season now.

   The rain of the blessing.
   It creates art.

   All phenomena can please a human being.

  3. Heips Ruma!
    YourYour blog is again full of beauty. Your iris are awesome. And the video was really lovely.
    Japan is a beautiful country, and so different than mine.
    In Finland we have now a summer at its best, but exceptionally a little chilly.

    I wish you a wonderful summer despite the rain.

  17. A Great Light comes from your beautiful images.
    I Knew the sense of SEI, in another part of my life
    I joined a Japanese spiritual movement.
    It 'was a particular internship, took me to visit Japan and
    Takayama and during the holidays of autumn.
    I left this movement, but everything that was pure and beautiful
    I kept to myself.
    I wish you, Ruma, to live always in the state of KEN WA FU.

  63. J'aime venir ici, comme dans un jardin, un endroit magique et y découvrir chaque fois des sujets intéressants. J'aime particulièrement les iris, qu'ils soient sauvages ou cultivés, pour la forme de leur fleur, et pour leurs couleurs variées du pastel aux couleurs plus affirmées. Il paraissent solides et se chiffonnent sous la moindre pluie, devenant fleur de papier. Que le soleil revienne et ils retrouvent toute leur vigueur. Étonnantes fleurs que tu nous présente si bien ici, avec talent.
    Belle journée à toi.

  90. Hi Ruma, it has been a long time since I blogged. I've seen all your beautiful photographs and today this amazing video. Thank you for sharing so much of the tradition of you country! Raining season is causing a lot of trouble; I heard on the news, mud flows are coming down from the hill/mountains. People are missing, homes had to be abandoned because of the rain and mud. I do hope you are not living in that area .... Hopefully it will stop raining or better yet has stopped already.
    I wish you good health and fortune.
