Carpe Diem #949 companionship
Its 12.01 a.m. right now . this means today , the 8th of April is the new year’s day in our lunar calendar . there is going to be grand feasts in every households . later on , people will climb nearby hillocks where there are pagan shrines .
at night youngsters will dance( holding each others hands , making a chain or chains ) which is known as ” thabal chongba ” ( dancing in the moonlight ) . remembering my youth and my friends , here is my attempt for the prompt ” companionship ” .

iris smell wakes me up
( German iris , local name ‘kombirei ‘ , is offered to the sylvans , deities of the woods for a prosperous new year along with the different dishes of the day . that’s why I use the iris flower in this haiga. )
