Spring Equinox, a time of Celebration


 it is the wild dance
between winter and spring
that stirs
and wakens us from our depths


my heart opens to greet a new season
kissing winter farewell
with gratitude for sheltering my spirit
under a cloak of the quiet inner dance


winter
slips away
opening to more light
more shadows
reflections
and dancing waters
stirring life
with Spring's
wakening spirit

Wishing one and all a Lovely Equinox
be it Spring or Autumn

  5. Hello, Tammie Lee.

    Thank you for your love and sincerity.
    I cannot take your words without my tears.

    We did not know the real nature of the object which we made.
    We have done irreparable thing.
    The monster of the uncontrollability. . .

    I am ashamed for world friends in our ignorance.
    I apologize to world friends as Japanese one.
    However, you do not need to forgive Japan which polluted the earth.
    Because this result is last arrival point of way which ourselves chose.

    The tsunami is the creation of the Nature.
    The monster is the creature of the Man.

    This tragedy is already too enough.
    The fire fighting workers who prepared for death...
    The citizens who avoid radioactivity, and wander...

    The monster is Absolutely unnecessary.
    Convenience. Luxury. Comfort. more, and more...
    Even if I was robbed of all of them, I am enough if there is the beautiful earth.
    I accept the misfortune with pleasure.

    The beauty of the Nature which you show.
    After our tragedy, I recognized them like the complete jewels.

    I deeply thank for your warm heart and thoughts...

    From Japan, ruma

  59. As always your photos fill my eyes with their beauty. I always find myself unable to express the deep feeling I have for your pictures. Your poetry combined with them is exquisite.

    When I imagine winter and Spring--I see a picture in my mind, a beautiful woman in winter white, slowly kissed and warmed by her love dressed in spring green. Silly isn't it?

    lol I have such a great imagination! Thank you again for sharing your wonderful gifts with us.
