New Moon


It is great for Mei-Shun to walk to the nearest shrine after 1 month, on 朔日 meaning the first of lunar November. Last time found colorful foliage, while this time all different. Rice paddy changed into beige field covered by frost, looked hard in dark shadows of trees. 手水鉢=chozu-hachi, a square basin to wash hands before prayer in the shrine garden was frozen.
