Finally Summer!

Approaching mid June... cold days lingered on for so long
in New York area. But finally, the last Sakura turned to
leaves and the graceful Iris holds up the pods, promising
next year's return.

birds chirping
earlier than usual
forcast of a very hot day

小鳥まで 早起きするや 酷暑の日

ceiling fan...
afternoon nap,
a slow day of June

扇風機 眠りをさそう 六月の午後

It's been many years since Mother passed away.
But her Kimono still bears scent of camphor.

rearranging the closet
mother's kimono
bears camphor still

ころもがえ 母の着物の 樟脳のかおり
