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…

  1. lina… am still trying to sound 'poetic' and probably ending up sounding rather corny… :)Diana… lucky that I can continue to enjoy the views of the sawah padi here…Icy… thanks, and I am still trying to 'learning' from Rainfield61…coco… perhaps I can convey the hint to Daikokuten when I see him again… 🙂

  2. rainfield61… yeap, for now… Magia da Inês… thank you for your kind comments…Diane AZ… thank god for that…Elephant's Eye… your comment certainly brought a smile to me… ;)Alice… hehehee… just a little only lah…

  3. Hello Lrong, fellow ex-Malaysian here. Hubby and I just got back from our first trip to Japan. Enjoyed our trip very much …. eating, shopping and sightseeing.What a beautiful peom and photos to accompany. Just lovely.

  4. For once, I thought there was a circular hole in a wall to show the landscape until I read that it was a mirror. Very imaginative shot and you have a good eye for photography. Ok, now can I have the oyaki recipe please?(alice)

  5. GG… hi there… it is really good to hear from you again… and am glad to hear that you and your man enjoyed your visit to Japan…Alice… thank you for your kind comment… as for the oyaki recipe, I had put it up in the post some time ago… please see http://lronglim.blogspot.com/2011/10/potluck-party-with-neighbors-on-windy.htmlSorry I could not get the figures for the quantity… so, perhaps you need to do a bit of trial and error with the portions… good luck…

  6. I love the composition of your photos. The first one has lines leading to the houses. The second is my favourite.Thank you for your sun bird identification. I wasn't sure what it was and was hesitant to hit the post button. Glad to learn from you.

  7. Arigatou! Aiya, if only I saw the reply to my comment earlier. I should have bought the lotus root today when I went grocery shopping. But never mind, will definitely try them soon. Is it a local food in your area? (Alice)

  8. Good morning Alice… Ithink oyaki is more of a specialty around the Nagano area… they do it with eggplants, mustard greens, etc… I like eating those very much whenever I have the chance…

  9. We were on a trip when you posted these beautiful views from your walk, so I'm doubly glad that I caught it. The hills around your home are beautiful.

Thank you for visiting!
