My neighbor's wisteria, seen out my back windows this morning. Thank you Kind Neighbor!
We benefit from the Japanese concept of "borrowed views."
Wisteria by Lady Ise
Of wisteria blooms
I caught sight, today, and ever since
Of the deepest hue, my passion,
Grows ever more profound!
And for the oolong tea lovers reading, see a picture here inside of the famous Wistaria tea house in Taiwan (yes, spelled differently).
Thread of Pearls by Lady Ise
Hanging from the branches
of a green willow tree,
the spring rain
thread of pearls.
