Japanese character of the day: kuzu ~ two moons (see left) under a mountain (see right). 崩れる kuzureru ~ to collapse, fall to pieces; 崩す kuzusu ~ 1. to demolish 2. to break a large ¥ note or bill 3. to write simplified Chinese characters (!) This is the poetry of writing.
What do two moons under a mountain really signify?
If you literally see two moons under a mountain (as reflected in a pool) you're either seeing double or the water is agitated ~ either way is a way to unrest or even destruction. But a moon 月 (tsuki) usually signifies a month 月 (gatsu). If you take a mountain 山 (yama) to mean a city or civilization the two months under the mountain would be a siege leading to collapse of society.
And there we have it: two moons under a mountain 崩.
Utter demolition and ruin!
