She moves through me
like sunlight swims through the trees,
energizing / enchanting
me at dawn / me at dusk
& I live because she travels thousands
of miles to nourish me.
The sun moves across the sky
sharing heat no matter the season,
high spirits / low shadows
in summer / in winter
& I’m warmed as I drink her in
like an oaky Scotch whiskey.

komorebi ( 木漏れ日 ) is the Japanese word for sunlight, which is filtered through the leaves of the trees.

One thought on “komorebi”
Beautiful. Especially the “oaky scotch whiskey” loved it.
