A moss-covered stone lantern in Tokei-ji temple

I found the dark and beautiful greenness of moss in the garden of Tokei-ji after the heavy rain of summer.

The uncommon beauty of vegetation peculiar to this melancholic rainy season is presented by the pale sunlight from the gloomy sky and the air heavy with moisture.

This deep greenness made me feel the absolute calmness of mind in the peaceful garden which secretly begins to prepare for radiant midsummer.
