Two Pines

keep company

Michele wrote her haiku in the Simply Haiku Forum, March 2007 .


It reminded me of our trip to Hinomisaki 日御碕, where the photo was taken.
Hinomisaki is a small peninsular at the far end of Honshu, the main island of Japan. The sunset is quite spectacular. The area vibrates with the energy of the Gods who fished the Japanese islands our of the sea from here. The great shrine of Izumo, Izumo Taisha, is close by to celebrate the gods.


Izumo Kaido, The Old Road of Izumo 出雲街道 ... leads very close past my present home in Japan. I am trying to write about it here.
