It Was My Desire by Bizartistique It Was My Desire by Bizartistique
凡河内躬恒

心あてに
折らばや折らむ
初霜の


おきまどはせる
白菊の花

Poem 29 from 小倉百人一首 (Ogura Hyakunin Isshu; 100 Japanese poems). A man wants to pick a white chrysanthemum, but everything is covered in snow and he is questioning which ones are colored and which are white.

October 2012; FinePixS4000

White chrysanthemums are often associated with death in Japan, Korea and other oriental countries. Many times butterflies are associated with hope and the soul. Check out:
