白と黒の世界はどうでしょうか?

格好いいか? それとも冷たいか?

Fond memories of summer

久しぶりにF-さんにいただいた浴衣を着ました。

懐かしい気分になって川柳を書こう!

英語にも 5-7-5 音節になるように書きました。

 
夏記憶

               Summer memories

夜空に花火

               Fireworks in the sky at night

瞬間で

               Such fleeting moments

God of this city

As I appreciated the panoramic view from one of the highest skyparks of this city, a song by Chris Tomlin played in my head.

Enjoy the view along with the song!

God bless this city!

A freezing cold yet beautiful day

It was a freezing cold day.

I don’t remember Spring being this cold and wet in Japan.

I set off to a nearby park to try my luck at catching the last of the cherry blossoms.

To my pleasant surprise,

the blossoms were still beautifully decorating the trees… and my umbrella.

今年の日本の春は寒かったので、桜の咲く時期は思ったより遅かったです。

日本を旅行中の私にとってそれは幸いな事でした。

寒い朝でしたが、公園で桜を撮った時は暖かかったです。

本当に綺麗でした。

桜を見るにつけ、

時を大事にしなければならないと思いました。

Seasons come and seasons go. It’s important to cherish each moment.

Although the rain was cold, it gave fresh coats of colours to the flowers.

冷たい雨の後、

花がより美しく見えました。

Spring on a tropical island

There is no distinct season on a tropical island.

Yet, I have recently observed the pre-spring phenomenon known as 三寒四温 sankanshion, which is a cycle of three cold days and four warm days.

Although the temperature change is more subtle here than in temperate countries, it is indeed interesting to observe that the same laws of nature that govern the arrival of spring are at work on this tropical island.

Spring is a time when most flowers bloom.

Let’s take some time to smell the flowers…
