Morning Mysticism – Komorebi : #ThursdayTreeLove

Morning Mysticism – Komorebi : #ThursdayTreeLove

It’s our last morning at Dhanachuli, a quiet little hamlet in the Himalayas. It’s a Thursday morning too. A day when we share our Tree Love. As I walk past the apple, pear and walnut trees, I look at them quizzically and wonder whether to feature them in my today’s post. I take some random shots, but they aren’t as appealing as I would like them to be. 

We are bidding this lovely hamlet a final goodbye, walking past the the flowers and tree in full bloom when this gigantic tree catches my eye. It’s got leaves like that of a Peepal tree. It bears no fruits; just a lush cover of green through which the gentle morning sunlight streams in, making it glisten with specks of gold. It’s a mystical sight to behold. 

The Japanese call the sunlight filtering through the trees Komorebi. 

Blessed be this wondrous gift from nature, blessed be this morning sight I behold and blessed be this beautiful tree that stands gracefully and so graciously. 

Linking this post to Parul, our Tree lady’s prompt for #ThursdayTreeLove 11.

  1. I am loving this hashtag… So many different posts i have come across . Would join this Thursday. .. (i have procrastinated this long.. fingers crossed…)
    Love the post …

  2. What a beautiful term for sunlight filtering in through the trees. Learnt something new today. I could imagine myself in the serene surrounding through your well crafted play of words, as I was almost there.

  3. I shouldn’t be surprised that the Japanese have a word for sun filtering through tree branches, because they have such an eye for natural beauty. I love the sight of filtered sunlight, too – happy to see it from your viewpoint.

  4. Komorebi is such a good word. Lovely capture and I love moving a step here and there when I spot the Sun behind a tree. It’s fun. Isn’t it?

    Thank you for joining #ThursdayTreeLove!
