Waiting for Autumn

Waiting for Autumn

Carpe Diem #1227 waiting for autumn (Aki tikashi, Aki wo matsu)

summer lull
waiting for autumn
coolness and color


end of summer
pregnant pause
waiting new season


rustle of leaves
creating a longing
for autumn woods

Throat Songs of the Steppes

Carpe Diem #858 Throat Songs of the Steppes

The “Throat Songs of the Steppes” reminded me of a Cherokee Indian Pow-Wow I attended.
  The chanting and rhythmic beats uniting all with its spiritual tone.

After watching some of the braves dance, the women danced and invited women in the crowd to join in.  It was truly a spiritual moment and a meeting of friends.
