Serendipitous
we watch the rising sun--
grazing cattle and I

Beatrice, this has a beautifully timeless quality.

Thanks Paul, last week in the Cotswolds in a very pretty hidden valley, during early morning walks it was just the gorgeous (Hereford? I think) herds grazing and myself, truly serendipitous, all the more so because most of the time it wasn't sunny!

Hello, Beatrice V.
Thank you for visiting it in my blog.
The chrysanthemum is a crest of the imperial families.
It is the one of the characteristic flowers of the Far East.
It has gracefulness such as your poetry.
