One Autumn Day

Tenryū-ji. A place I will never forget.

Another autumn day,

Gazed at a pretty sight that day.

Revel in it was all I did.

I thanked God that I am blessed.

A tear almost fell,

Happiness in my heart I couldn’t spell.

I closed my eyes,

Basked in the divine sights.

The tranquil zen garden, placid lake,

Reflected on my serene face.

Troubled thoughts were eased,

I was more than pleased.

The cool autumn wind blew,

I was filled with awe.

Japan was just a dream,

An impossible dream.

Made possible one autumn day

With the man I love beside me.
