Breathing out clouds

Breathing in cherry blossoms

Mt. Yoshino

(This haiku was sent to me by a friend just now, it fits perfectly to my day)


 A- gyo, one of the two guardien deities who protect the temple from evil. He has his mouth open.
 Un- gyo, also protector, contains his wrath. In front of every temple, these two statues, called Niou-zo, are standing left and right in the entrance gate.  I took this photos today at Butsumokuji, temple 42.
