Can I stay with you inside your brain
We won’t be alone”
-so wrote Jamila Faber of Leeuwarden in the Netherlands in her poem. I discovered her, among other authors, in the album “Europe at Home”, where my text was also published.
There is a world apart,
of elemental beauty carved by glacier,
where tiny wildflowers
pierce through limestone.
-a fragment of the poem The Breathing Burren by Maureen Grady.
I longed for Tokio, even on snowing days,
But look, a freezing, ragged beggar
is leaning there on a wall in the backstreets
what dream this man?
– a fragment of the poem by Hagiwara Sakutarō “A blue cat”.
