February 2016 Open Reading Review
Albert Sussler ( USA )
~ Poem: “Kanji of pleasures” ~
Kanji have a magic woven into their strokes.
~ “Knowing the Prefectures” ~
The only place to be destroyed by Godzilla 28 times.
~ Joke: “Japanese Business Lunch” ~
To be polite, I must buy everyone’s lunch, thought the Tokyo Businessman.
Isabelle Dunnett ( UK )
~ “Charcoal” ~
How could he manage to live his life without knowing that he didn’t own his own soul,
until this moment he had lived his life merely renting it from her.
Shoichi Miyamura ( Japan )
~ “Ko ko ni iru ( I”m here )” ~
Have you seen a big sky? When did you last breath deeply?
Widening the gap in between, why don’t you smell the sky and atmosphere?
~ “Do you see over there…?” ~
I start to feel the people around me are very important and can’t be exchanged for anything else.
~ “Song” by Kazue Shinkawa ~
The song that slips from the lips of a women
after giving birth to her first child
is the sweetest song in the world.
