THE SATURDAY SYMPHONY #19 (Tales from the far East)

Hey everyone,
Konnichiwa,
Nihao.
And a weekend good morning.

I hope you are well.
Welcome to the 19th edition of The Saturday Symphony.
This week let’s take a trip to the far East.

Land of the rising sun
How you awaken the soul!
Your richness
Your seclusion
And the poetry of your traditions.
I feel the spirit summons
The call to the East

Love the Japanese maple

This week’s three featured posts

  1. Moon’s Bedlam by SammicakesA stunning short story.
  2. Wolves of war by IngridThe beauty of perspective.
  3. A letter to you by AnushaCandid, honest and beautiful.

Water Lilies float
Thoughts are borne on fragrant winds
Tired mind finds rest

The modern Geisha

“DARKNESS AND LIGHT”

Thank you all, lots of love.

On the country road.

Be free, it’s okay to appreciate other cultures. It doesn’t mean you’re cheating on your own. Nor does it mean you don’t appreciate your own traditions.

Home is where the heart is
But the spirit cannot be tamed
It longs to roam wild and free

The peoples of Russian Siberia.
