Walking the hills in mid November 2011

One morning mid November...
Was blessed with an opportunity...
Some moments, to accompany my love... 

The paddy fields, naked...
A farmer's house or two...
An 'out-of-place', over-sized villa...

Japanese pampas grass...
gracefully dancing...

Up the hills we walked...
a fishing village, vaguely...

Perched high up a concrete wall...
Cheering his heart out...
Stood Daikokuten, the god of wealth...

A few meters nearby... 
Ebisu the god of fishermen, smiled... cheekily

We carried on... unhurried...
A pond appeared... 
I took a deep breath...
listening to the soft wind, speaking...

At a corner, a mirror stood, overlooking...
I tilted my head up...
Greeting me, a big round eye...

I held my love's hand, whispering... 
Life is so sweet...
