Japanese lacquer art

Wandering around our garden late this afternoon, the amazing autumn colours brought back powerful memories of our visits to Japan. As a ray of sun momentarily lit up leaves on a copse of maples, the landscape briefly looked like a finely decorated Japanese lacquered screen. The recent rain and the darkening sky further enhanced the vivid spectacle.

  1. The way you use the English language is poetic. Have you considered Story Writing before? Your words make me want to keep reading what comes next after the Japanese Maple.
