Hazy moon – おぼろ月

Black spring night sky. I
descry through blacker branches
Oborozuki.

    I’ve only just got down my hiragana and katakana, and barely touched the kanji – but I did learn moon/flesh, and I was so happy when I was able to read this title! And sorry for getting distracted from the poem, which I liked very much 🙂

          You will love it, or at least I hope so. I’ve been several times in different seasons. Spring and winter are my favorites. I am excited for you and of course, you are going to take tons of photos and tell us about your adventures!!!!

            I wish I could go in spring! I shall indeed take pictures, I forget things so easily but it would be very unfortunate to forget my first visit!

              It sin’t you’ll forget – it is just such a rush of sounds, smells, sights – the moment when you first see people being pushed into the commuter trains by the train pushers, the first time you have udon in a busy noodle house….all those things. Being immersed in the life and land of a different group of people (very different).

              my favorite time was a visit to Ryonan-ji during the winter and it began to snow….hatsuyuki. I did a post about it. Japan gets into your heart…

    What does oborozuki mean? I tried to look it up. No easy answer. Over to you. 🙂
