Guardian Gate

On this beautiful summer day.

I look out and see the flowers.

Yellow, orange, blue and violet.

Oh, how such beauty surrounds me.

As I look out towards the sun.

Watching it falling from the earth.

I see the sun shinning off the Shinto shrine.

I think to myself about how-

great spirits must dwell among the leaves.

While inspiration has been ignited-

in the form of two Haiku’s.
“The Guardian gate.

Toji shrine dedicated-

To the Shinto gods”
“Protect us spirits

From the evil entities.

Outside the temple.”
