Once again, Mr. X left a gift for me from Violator. Inside I found Soraya’s resplendent newly released formal gown created for the winning MVW 2014 and friend, Anjelica Carling (bravo)…it is called Golden Dawn…and indeed, it is a dream to wear…and yes, it makes you feel on top of the world.
This gorgeous heavily embroidered red and 24 kt. gold thread floral Kimono flows around me as I glide along the path of dwarf pines that mantle the hillsides and fringe the shores of ponds. It has an ornate pattern of embossed gold on gold chrysanthemums symbolic of endurance and integrity. Gold flowers peek through deep cuts in the layers of sumptuous red silk as layers seem dusted with gold making this unforgettably elegant.
Following the path, I see that the pine trees have been fashioned so that their branches leap and coil, suggesting the undulating, animated play of dragons – in this kimono I feel like an elegant dragonfly gliding victoriously on the wisteria wind. The headdress made of red and gold encrusted flowers spiral and twirl like beautiful blossoms that float never falling to the ground.
The path ends in front of a simple teak Tea House set high on a bluff overlooking the crashing waves of the ocean with a romantic moon gate on the horizon. It is so serene and peaceful listening to the ocean and looking into his eyes.He smiled at me as he whisked the bright green tea and ladled the hot water from the kettle into the tea bowl. The tea was delicious.
As night faded and the golden dawn slowly emerged… he presented me with an ancient scroll tied with a red and gold ribbon…tears filled my eyes and I could barely play my Shamisen…as he read what he wrote to me….
yumeji ni wa
ashi mo yasumezu
utsutsu ni hitome
mishigoto wa arazu
Though I go to you
ceaselessly along dream paths
the sum of those trysts
is less than a single glimpse
granted in the waking world.
