May my spirit come to be reborn




Morning sunlight gets into the trees and onto the ground white with frost, and soon the thin layer of frost turns into many twinkle water drops on the tip of grasses which cover the ground.
I'm sensitive to the cold but I don't dislike the morning crisp air.
Seeing the birds on such air makes me feel better and makes me try to get to the pond for migrating ones.
Remembering my first visit here, Koya-pond(昆陽池)in Itami City, when it was falling in flakes that mingled with some soaring birds, I walked around the pond for a while.
There seemed to be fewer birds now , especially on the numbers of gull, maybe due to weather or environmental condition, still their soaring and landing on the water are soothing.

I really hope my spirits rebirth like the birds' landing after flying in the air shining even in dim wintry sunlight.

Thank you very much for your kind comment as usual. It makes me warm in spite of recent coldness.

I'm still struggling with some pictures in my older posts, yet I'm happy that I solved the fundamental broblem.

Thank you so much for having encouraged me like this.
Yes, computer behave itself, but the complicated system( when I don't about it) makes me annoy...

Have a good week staying warm.

Whenever I see migratory birds resting their wings, I imagine unknown foreign lands which they came from. It is also amazing for me that such tiny birds crossed the ocean and came to Japan. I agree with you. They give us the sense of rebirth because of their strong energy.
Your photos are great!
I am sorry to hear that still you have had troubles about photos. Relax and take it easy! Everything will be all right very soon.

Haricot さんの昆陽池のポスト覚えていますよ。伊丹空港のそばにこんなに自然に恵まれた場所があるのだ!と思ったものでした。

道路の段差で足をくじいて、今ヨチヨチ歩きで家事もままなりません。サラさんからもっと足を上げて歩くようにとアドバイス受けました。そうですよね。知らないうちに足元もとろくなってきました。冷たい空から舞いおりる真っ白な鳥達は美しくて眩しいです!!
Have a good day!

昆陽池がharicotさんのバードウオッチングのお気に入りの場のようですね。私はこれまでのところは、馬見丘陵公園の池です。コハクチョウの飛来する琵琶湖岸に行ってみたいのですが、確実に見るには朝か夕方ということなので躊躇しています。確かに渡り鳥の飛翔は輪廻の果てに飛び立っていくような気がします。

思ったより早く新ポストの投稿で驚いています。熱心にリサイズなさったのでしょうね。根を詰めすぎて、お疲れのでませんように。問題が完全に解決するよう祈っています。

私も朝露を含んだ植物を見るのが好きです。地表でキラキラ輝いてダイヤモンドのようで、自然の営みに心あらわれます。
鳥のはばたく時のきれいな模様と鳥が蹴り上げたしぶきがきれいに撮れてますね。
Have a nice week!

とりあえずポストできるようになって良かったですね!
白と黒とグレイのモノトーンが優雅で美しいです。ジャンパーと飛翔する鳥が重なり合って、この詩も素敵ですね。Haricotさんの英訳も素晴らしいです。この意気で飛翔し、再生の着地を夢見る私です^^

ありがとうございます。PCは機構を知らずに
使っているのだとつくづく思いました。
こういうものを造った人達ってすごい、、、。

今年は飛翔と着地で再生を図りましょう!

Thank you for those lovely picturres of birds. We have many small (colourful) birds in our garden. We leave food out for them. We have had very cold weather and much snow, but now the snow has gone.

We wish you both a GOOD 2013.
Mike and Ann.

All kindly blessings haricot,
It is delightfully refreshing to read your English words with their poetic oriental lilt. Because of your choice of words and the arrangement of their order it makes the jaded English reader linger and extract the deeper meaning behind your thoughts.
Beautiful pictures too, full of life and hope lifting my spirit like the flight of the birds you show.
Respectful good wishes,
Crowbard

You are lucky! The birds which visit our garden are not so colorful here, yet the loveliness maybe the same.:)

Crowbard

Your pseudo is interesting, Crowbird. And you words are so kind. I'm glad to hear your comment like this.
