spring moon


full spring moon -
rays of hope
and fear

The moon hangs there beautifully above my bamboo grove.

But they predict more flooding during this spring moon tide during the night.

Low temperature, high tides to hit affected area

Residents in the quake-hit area are living in fear of aftershocks and other natural disasters following a magnitude 9.0 earthquake one week earlier.

The Meteorological Agency said on Friday that strong aftershocks will continue with an intensity of 5-minus or more on the Japanese scale of zero to 7.

It cautions the residents about the possibility of a tsunami following large aftershocks.

Most of the quake-hit region is suffering from low temperatures. Some parts are expected to sink to minus 2 degrees Celsius on Saturday morning.

Weather officials are calling on those living in shelters without sufficient clothing to be prepared.

The Meteorological Agency also warns of spring tides likely to last for one week from Saturday.

Many parts of the grounds in the quake-hit areas have sunk, leaving the coastal areas susceptible to flooding from high tides.

The agency says the threat from seasonal high tides is not like that from a tsunami. It says people will have time to act as sea levels increase gradually.

But it warns that people working at estuaries or coastal areas must pay attention to sea levels for around one hour before and after a high tide.

The full moon over Kyoto always amazes me: so large and yellow. It really does seem to sit just above the mountains.

I've just spent a few minutes outside looking at it. It's a clear night here, but the moon is so bright you can hardly spot any stars. If one looks long and closely at it, you'll spot some continents.

the tide
higher than usual ...
late March moon

Good luck, Gabi san. My thoughts are with you ...
