... in Japan

マクマレイ デビッド 

 

Mid-August each year in Japan, small fires are lit to welcome ancestral spirits back home and to light harvested fields to enable folk-dancing in the evenings.

Written in the spirit of honouring

aging war veterans:

 

against twilight sky

poppy petals softly drop

one by one
