A great waterfall
its steady roar joined
by autumn’s voices

– Shinoda Teijirō

Today is the first day of Autumn 2016 and when I ran across this haiku poem by Shinoda Teijirō on this blog post about autumn in Japan, along with these video clips, they seemed to fit together. The video was taken in August 2015 on a family trip in Grand Tetons National Park in Wyoming where I found the poem “August Light” for my dear friend Terri.
