Winter morning

標準

Today falls on Dàxuě that is the 21st solar term out of 24 in the system.

.

As I have lived very close to Shimogamo Shrine all my life and my house is almost inside the forest that surrounds the shrine, when I read this haiku for the first time, I thought it didn’t tell the truth.

.

However, somehow I felt some moments of silence this morning.

.

Oh, Dàxuě/

Even the crows don’t caw/

Shrine grove in the morning/
