Random thoughts and pictures
Both the picture and the poem are beautiful. Where is this, Lochan?Rita
Hey Rita, that is Ueda in Nagano Prefecture in Japan. The picture was taken in autumn of 2009. The colours were truly wonderful and this picture really does not do justice to the real scene that I was lucky enough to experience.
KireiiiIt's just like Kimono colour...
Nihon Neko, you are right. Like a kimono. Nature was wearing an early Showa kimono with some bright colour (leaves) and some dark colours (tree trunks). I have very fond memories of that area and miss it very much.
It is very beautiful!!We say ko-yo. ko-yo mean is red leaves.Leaves color change from green to red or yellow.In Japan ko-yo season now.hayaku nihon ni kitene!!
Hey Lochan, beautiful poem and love love love the fall colors anywhere in the world!!
Rajni,Me too. Love fall colours. Best season for me.
Both picture and poem complement each other so beautifully.
