Critters and Japanese Poem etc;

So sorry that my background keep getting shrunken and back; still height isn't normal.
*Meadow Bunting on the Electric Wire*
My husband woke me up hearing this Meadow Bunting singing morning song the other day♪ He  was on the electric wire in front of our house. I rushed out to take pictures p:-)

Butterfly in front of the poem of the calendar 
These were gifted pictures from the lady member of my husband's band group.  This "C.atrata"  we call 'haguro tonbo 羽黒トンボ, black winged dragonfly' got into her house from the open window and perched on a small laundry pole inside. 
Behind the butterfly, there is a calendar with poem by Mituo Ueda. And she taught me that in his book there are English translations of his works. I couldn't help buying it p:-)
*You are born to be yourself, not to earn points from others.
You come first, points follow you.*

His book I bought and the calendar pic from pc.

*Flowers outside of the front door surviving the hot weather♫♫♫*

Still have a background issue; So sorry that I haven't  visited you.  Have a wonderful weekend and Thank you very much for your sweet comments.

Linking this post to these pages and Thanks to all the link hosts;


  1. Love the top photo of Meadow Bunting! He must have been singing very loud :-) The haguro tonbo picked pefect spot for the artistic photos. Poems by Mituo Ueda are excellent! How lovely the book has English translation. I love the poem about flowers very much.
    Your flowers are gorgeous! Have a wonderful new week, Miyako san! xo

  2. You and your husband are a good team -- he finding the bird (and waking you) and you taking the great picture -- I can almost hear that bunting sing! You caught the perfect moment.

    How lovely of your friend to share her perfect picture -- and no wonder you bought the poetry book!

  3. What a delightful way to wake up and listen to the birds singing.

  4. Love your bunting visitor! And the dragonfly! You always present your posts in such an artistic way!

  5. Dearest Miyako,
    We all have to thank your husband for being alert enough to hear this Meadow Bunting sing in the early morning!
    Thank you for sharing the photos.
    Also the poem is very meaningful and yes, flowers are PURE and they give us such beauty. People can be tricky at times.
    Sending you hugs,
