The question


(Sad rain Watercolor on paper, 2001)

What do people want to find on other planets?
New love or new life or new place for different wars...

What do you wish to find in my soul?
New love or new life or new place for spiritual wars...

Forgive us our sins


The Earth has much beauty yet.
Because many people have an admiration with
Her
Calm Snow
Strong Rivers
Soft Rains
Heavy green grass
White Clouds

...

The Earth reflects the feeling of love to people.
Her
Soft rains play the music of dreams.
Calm snow covers the troubles of people.
The sky paints beautiful pictures with white clouds.

The Earth has much beauty yet.
As a beloved woman who can forgive the pain.

As your love for me...


You had presented an amazing flower to me.
I had decided to understand where the beauty of the flower lived.

I had divided the flower into different parts.
I had taken the yellow petals in my hands.
I had taken the green leaves in my hands too.

But it was not the soul of the beauty.

The wind blew it all off from the table
where I had put the leaves and tender yellow petals.
I did not recognize how the beauty of the flower was made.

As your love which I separated into parts for my studying
this disabled flower did not exist anymore anywhere.

As your love for me...

The Servants


The words are like invisible dutiful servants.
We tell words to each other.
We tell words in a blaze of anger.
We tell words in the beauty of love.

A whole host of servants...
These servants embody the words in life.

The words of hatred may become a war.
The words of love may become a baby.
The words of childlike admiration may become an inspiration.

The invisible dutiful servants...

The walk along the street of your words


You were worthy of love...

The different streets exist in towns.
But I would like to find the street
which was full of your sunny words.
I remember it was summer.
I remember it was the town.
The town was a ruler of various streets.

crowded streets...
deserted streets...
dead-end streets...

I preferred the unusual street with your words
which you created for me specially.

Nobody else knew my secret.

I have found the town.
I have found the street.
I have a walk along the street of your words.
They did not disappear after a long time.
My walk is full of your sunny words.
I know them all except
the words "He was worthy of love"
These new words are written
by a sad drizzling rain
on a glass of pools
for me specially.
