Michelle-In chapter two, I could only find one passage of imagery. It was, “The serfs of Lord Yoshikuni, daimyo of Awa, moved in two ant like lines up and down the gangplank.” This passage of imagery explains that the serfs were walking in two very straight lines. It gives an idea of what the serfs were told to do.
Also, in this chapter were five ways passages that showed how Muna thinks.
1) “He must find a hiding place that he could slip into without attracting notice.” Tells how determined Muna is to get across the sea.
2) “He was delighted that his plan was working so well.” Tells that he really wants to get over the sea without any trouble or being caught.
3) “He thought of the rice cakes, but he knew that they would have to last him a journey of several days. It would be foolish to eat so soon.” Tells that Muna is trying to plan his trip carefully.
4) “He tried to conjure up the vision of his warrior father.” Tells that he really wants to meet his father and that thinking of his father makes him feel better.
5) “He would never be a pirate's slave.” Tells that he really wants to get through his quest without being stopped. That would mean that he left for nothing.

Maya- In chapter 5, my two passages were, "For many years he had kept both spirt and flesh so strictly discipliend that now his short, powerful body conveyed the vitality and allertness of a great buck deer." That gives the idea that this 50 year old man named Fukuji is stronger than most people his age and went through a lot of hard work to make it that way. My other passage was' "But as he watched the fragile flakes melt on the stones, he had felt in his heart the pain of a man who has knoen many years and many lives that began in brightness only to fall and disappear." I think that this passage gives the impression that the snow is like a man whoes life started great but ended badly.

The passages when Muna was thinking are:
1) "Takanobu is dead. Takanobu is dead." Muna thinks that Takanobu is dead.
2) "'Chi Chan! Chi Chan!' she never called him Muna, but 'Little One,' a baby name he both liked and resented." This shows that Muna misses his mother.
3) "But as he turned to look to his right, he saw with a thrill of wonder what sort of shop it was, for the right wall was hung with swords." This shows that Muna is fascinated by swords.
4) "'I must make him like me," Muna thought." this shows that Muna wants to make a good first impression with Fukuji.

Lines about Muna’s thinking

(1)The retainer’s halberd was hard across his chest Muna might have dared to reach out and touch the beautiful cart. Perhaps this father had owned such a carriage. This shows that Muna was very curious and was always thinking about his father and how successful he is.
(2)”Muna, his face burning, stood perfectly still, resisting the warriors laughter as though it were a bodily assault. All the insults of a life time were bound up with the name No Name”. This shows that Muna does get upset about his name and he want to find his real name.

(1)”The wide tan face was framed above with a sloppily bound up topknot and below with a beard that seemed to have grown without its owner’s noticing or caring.His blue tunic and trousers were as faded and tattered as Muna’s own. No one would take him as a warrior”. This imagery line is when Muna looks at the warrior. This helps us understand that sometimes warriors are not dressed like a warrior would dress.

(2) “Four retainers in silk brocade pushed back the crowd with their halberds, making way for a small ox-drawn carriage. The carriage was lacquered black, with flowers and butterflies engraved in gold leaf”. In this imagery Muna just got off the boat and saw a passing carriage. This helps us understand that Muna was fascinated by things like this.
