木漏日 komorebi

There is a Japanese word, komorebi, which has no direct equivalent in English. It roughly translates as “the sunlight filtering through the leaves in the trees.”

It is written with 3 kanji. The first kanji 木 means tree(s); the 2nd one 漏 menas “escape” or “leaking through”; the 3rd kanji 日 is “sun.”

The interplay of leaves and light in the shadows on the forest floor brings a sense of awe.
