Kamikochi

Breathing in the fresh mountain air,
I absorb the landscape before me.
Standing tall beneath the wispy clouds,
the mountain embraces the river.
Sandy brown, granite gray,
with streams of white pebbles
flowing down the slopes.

Flowing to
a richer part of the mountain
covered with yellow-green grass,
surrounded by auburn trees,
next to the white pebble beach
by the blue-green water.
The sun shines throughout.

Standing on Kappa Bridge,
I look dull in comparison,
for I am only one color,
the color of my skin.
However, when standing next
to my brothers and sisters
from all over the world,
we are also part of nature’s beauty,
varying colors standing together,
living in harmony.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Landscapes or Seascapes

Cee’s challenge this week was landscapes or seascapes, but I’m going to do something a little different and post images of skyscapes that resemble seascapes 🙂

On my trip to Vegas, our flight was delayed a total of 4 hours, so what was supposed to be a noon flight ended up being a late afternoon flight where I got to see the sunset in the sky. It was an amazing view and probably the only thing beneficial about our flight delay (being stuck at the crowded LA airport for 3 hours).

I hope you enjoy these.
