winds blow from the west
announcing the arrival of winter
my heart quiets for a long rest
I found this photo on theoddessyonline.com. It was part of an article on 11 beautiful Japanese words that don’t exist in English. I love the words, photos and fact that these words convey a whole collection of experiences drawn from the Japanese love for nature and politeness. They convey meanings and subtleties that we don’t have in English. Enjoy!
