Lost in a world of my own,

While running to catch up with life,

I’m too busy to notice,

The beauty around me.


But today I walk along,

With the grass caressing my feet,

As the birds break into song,

As my eyes glimpse the blue sky.


The fragrance of the blooming flowers,

Carried by the gentle breeze,

Lifts my spirits,

And sets my mind at ease. 


The leaves move with the wind,

As if in a happy dance,

As the sunlight shines through,

With nature, I rekindle my romance.


Komorebi :ย  the sunlight shining through the leaves of trees, creating a sort of dance between the light and the leaves

Language : Japanese


I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge and the National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) . I’m trying to weave poems around unusual words or words from other languages that are just beautiful.
