the moon eats the sun
taking the light from the sky
darkness in the rain
—a haiku, by Jan.
i had no idea there was even fruit on this tree
i see it every day, several times a day and one day, one had fallen down, then i looked up and saw the rest
…they are “ume” sometimes translated as plum, or apricot…
they are not for eating right off the tree, but need to be prepared first..
now on this cloudy rainy day…a total eclipse is happening RIGHT NOW!!!
if you hang a quilt on a fruit bearing plum tree…
in the light of an eclipse….
it’s a very, very powerful blessing.
how about some begonias?
aren’t they pretty??
