June Review

June 2015 Open Reading Review

A good turn out for June with a good mix of styles. Space Sakura has proved to be a good home for our writing community. For half a year we have been given a space to share our works that would so often be left in the silence of our pages. I always feel happy after an afternoon of sharing ideas.
Word Power:
“She helped to find the people with leprosy so that the government could hide them” : Tokie Takahashi


Yoko Kanai ( Japan )

~ “Rock and Roll Marathon, Oldest to finish.” ~
I was just really thankful that I could finish today.

Shoichi Miyamura ( Japan )

~ “Dream” ~
Surprised, I woke up. Three days after, I’m still alive and I’m writing this poem.

~ “China Pot” ~
Looking at the broken pieces of the pot, I ponder on the space it had cherished inside itself.

Alex McLaren ( UK )

~ “Journals of Rudy Rucker, 6 reviews.” ~
Ironic and detached is one of the ways that Rucker describes himself.

Albert Sussler ( USA )

~ “Wher was I” ~
parents, siblings, all the actors I knew,  wear their duration differently.

~ “Dignity” ~
From a scorned lover to a nation at war, the sense of dignity, is at the core of resistance and revenge.

Fumiko Kodama ( Japan )

~ “Back to the Past” ~
I am afraid it is heading for war and nuclear disasters as well.

Kaoru Suzuki ( Japan )

~ “Thoughts on Haiku” ~
Too much revising makes the personality disappear – Kikuchi Toru

~ Haiku:  “Clouds” ~
Floating Clouds, to the future, in the blue sky

Tokie Takahashi ( Japan )

~ “An” Movie on Leprosy ~
She helped to find the people with leprosy so that the government could hide them.
