Autumn leaves in Tokei-ji

In the shady grove, the dazzling rays of sunshine falling through the twigs and branches are brightening the deep gold leaves of maple like a galaxy of stars which have just descended into the garden.

The true nature of our universe might secretly present itself as the fleeting beauty of the each passing seasons in this earthly world.

Soon these twinkling leaves will fall and accumulate on the cold ground and begin to decay and change into rich and fertile black earth in the midst of winter.
