puddles of water on fields
workers in sedge hats
fields filled with water
men descends to place seedlings
women in kasa
the paddies planted
bow down in prayer
planting the mother earth’s womb
promising fine crops
young girls singing songs
hoping for a good harvest
time for festival
aura of dances
enhanced crop’s vitality
melodies in air

Love the photo with the “reflected shadows” of your haiku just below it. So nice. Sounds like you read up a lot on the ceremonies.
Thank you for the kind remark.. 🙂
