Namari Spa

The waterfall mimics the noise
of brittle-winged cicadas.

The river's numerous vowels
tread tipsily through the stones.

The maples wave across the gorge
as if their leaves knew each other.

 

 

 

 

 

Note: Namari Spa is an onsen - hot spring resort - in the Tohoku region of Japan.
