frolicking in blue fields…

she came upon and frolicked in, fields of blue flowers while gathering sansai (mountain vegetables)

when her basket was filled, aiko returned home and on the way came across a simple buddhist temple and a great buddha image. it reminded her of her home and the great daibutsu in kamakura…she left a few coins in gratitude of her abundance, said a quiet prayer and lit some incense in memory of her ancestors before continuing down the mountainside.
