her sole hope | Yuu Ikeda

In a cocoon of winter,

she is breathing in

shadows of winter

and breathing out words for someone

like her who lives in the coldest winter.

Her sole hope is that

shapes of words warm someone

and herself,

to wait for spring hopefully.

A White Rose | Yuu Ikeda

A white rose blooms

on the canvas of winter morning,

every time I sigh.

The rose is always gazing at the future

that new warmth will bloom

instead of the rose.

I’m also gazing at the future

that cruel coldness will continue

to pierce my skin.

The Color | Yuu Ikeda

Your eyes

that fears, madness

and love dwell

crave my lips.

.

The cobalt blue

is my weak point.

.

I can’t reject the color

because

I want to feel

fears, madness

and love

that hide in your eyes.

Winter’s Hug | Yuu Ikeda

I’m merry on winter

because

piercing coldness

makes me feel alive.

.

Snowflakes on my eyelids.

.

A frozen puddle

that reflects my pale face.

.

Sounds of wind like needles.

.

They make me feel alive.

They remind me of living.

Dear Autumn | Yuu Ikeda

What wraps me calmly

is only you.

.

Even in scorching darkness,

your eyes become a lantern,

your breeze caresses my cheeks,

and your colors plant a hope

in my empty space.

Autumn Night | Yuu Ikeda

Pastel leaves
hover around my summer.
They draw pictures
full of sorrow and gleam,
and fill my memories
with cool healing.
I leave my skin to the misty dream,
then, fall asleep.

Eyes on Wings | Yuu Ikeda

Eyes on wings
carve the past in her
and
show her the future

Approaching autumn
dyes these eyes new dawn
Whirling summer
gives these eyes vehemence soul

Smoke | Yuu Ikeda

Smoke of a cigarette
draws a silhouette of fireworks

Even the discolored sky
changes into summer dreams

So, I smoke

Hopes | Yuu Ikeda

Petals of the moon

ascend to the summer night

dyed in vehemence stars

They emit hopes

They illuminate hopes

They wait for hopes

They are hopes itself
