Haiku

Standard

This post is for my Cornish Blogger friend Sally.

Referring to my last post from Kew, Sally asked about the Haikus in Kew Gardens – she would love to read them all. I saw them written in Japanese.

I went back to Kew, back to the Haikus and looked closer.

Happy to say ….I did find a Haiku written in English 🙂

So here is one for you, Sally ♥

Bees happily hum
Wisteria vines strangle
Days bleed into night.

Kew Gardens 17th Smile – Japanese Festival

Standard

As the seasons change – Kew Garden does too. We went to the Japanese Festival in Kew.

God's beauty never ends.
We just need to take time to open our eyes to see it,
to feel it and to experience all it can be.

In the Temperate house we saw Art work

‘A thousand Springs’ from Chiharu Shiota.

5000 Haikus – in Japanese – referencing nature – suspended on red threads

while listening to beautiful music by a Japanese composer.

The Chalk Garden was a mixture of chalky English limestone and beautiful Japanese planting.

We saw colours with Bonsai Trees

I’ll leave you with a Japanese proverb

One who smiles 
rather than rages 
is always stronger.

Wishing everyone a great weekend !
