露時雨 Tsuyu shigure
Tsuyu = dew, shigure = passing shower
Tsuyushigure describes the sight of a the morning dew in autumn when there is such a covering of dew one would think there has been a passing rain shower. On a clear autumn morning you can see this beautiful sight especially where there are clusters of trees and bushes.
Konoha = tree leaf, ame = rain
‘Konohaame’ refers to autumn leaves fluttering in the wind like rain. Walking around town this time of year you can see such scenes of leaves dancing in the wind. During the hotter months these leaves provided shade and we enjoyed their lush green. Then in the autumn we enjoyed their brilliant colours. Having played their part in the grand scheme of things, the leaves are carried by the wind back to the earth. When you come across ‘konohaame’, take a moment to reflect on and appreciate the course of nature.
