SHIBATA, Toyo


My Reply

In my ears the wind

Invited me

In intoxicating tones

"Shall we go now

To the other side?"

So, I

Quickly replied

"I'll stay here

Just a bit longer

There are still some things

Left undone"

The wind

With a pout on her face

Swiftly returned from whence she

came.

Now I’ve passed 90

Each day is

So precious

The wind that brushes my cheek

A phone call from a friend

The people who come to visit

Each of them in their way

Give me

The strength to live.
