That light is quite magical, not only illuminating the dark forest floor, but also shining on the grasses. I love the tactile softness of this - it's as if the tree bark were smooth, and the shadows velvety. And what a fabulous word!

Yes, such a lovely word, Jacki. One of my Japanese friends explained it thus: "Ki, more, hi mean tree, leak, sun respectively. Ki + more + hi = komorebi". I enjoy exploring other languages. Thank you so much for your lovely comments. :-)
