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.”
