The sun played a game of hide and seek with the clouds today. The bright sun shone down upon the earth for a while, then darted behind the clouds as if it were a shy Japanese child. The temperatures were on the cooler side today. A sign that this long summer is going through a transition. According to the Japanese way of counting the seasons we have already moved into autumn.
This sunflower was deciding whether or not to bloom. It felt as if it were holding something back. Could it be aware that the long days have shortened, and that the leaves will soon be turning into autumn hues?
I don’t know. But I sure enjoyed watching the dance.
