Memory of Summer in Hanazonocho
Opening the blinds to the light of new beginnings, shadows of his past
Hover in limbo, near, a moment comes
Like a stranger who enters an old theater
A slow rain drifts down imperceptibly, a pattern of colors he has just now seen
Motion swirls within his memory, as landscape spreads
Quiet for a time, save a train passing outside his window, a subtle rhythm
Like slow poison enriches his days, afternoons of solitude
And always the cicada’s cry
