Rain of Fire

After a loud outburt,
the lights of fire slowly
come down from the dark sky.

It is like a short rainfall.
It is strange but
beautiful rain of fire.

Strange Weather

 Cold air and warm air,
 when they have a
 sudden meeting in the sky,
 make strong wind.

 We have this sort of wind
 near the end of winter or
 in early spring,

 We are having, however,
 strong wind frequently
 this November.
 It is strange.

went through our part of Japan on Friday,
causing hard rain and strong wind.

Some railroad trains were stopped.
Others were late.
Rivers were full of brown water.

More Fireworks

I have more pictures
of fireworks
sent up into the
sky over the
Abukuma River at the
end of July.

Days have
gone by.
It was a
long time past.
The long summer of
strong heat
is truly gone.

Night Walk: A Pleasure Event
Every fall
we have a pleasure event.
It was probably started by
farmers back in the old Japan
to make themselves happy
after the hard work of
taking in their produce.

Sundown: With Different Colors
Because our town has
mountains in the west,
the sun goes down
before changing its color.

We have no chance of
seeing its orange color
touching the red skyline.

It was a short time before
The land was dark but the
sky was still bright.

We saw a great number of
small birds
going round in the
sky over the town,
making loud noise.
