Camellia and Samurai


... 武士の夢の後 ...

camellia blooming
in an old garden -
samurai's dreams

entertaining guests
in the sitting room -
camellia tree

I found this tree in Katsuyama.

I like the juxtaposition of new(blooming)and old, of dreams and reality(camellia). This is a master piece for me because it is based on more than two levels.
I like the photo, too. It gave me an idea what this camellia is.In fact,I've nested in this lovely enriching site.Thank you Gabi.

at the edge
of the samurai's dreams
the geisha's skirt

rain and the sound
of bamboo leaves
