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

Spring is in me | Yuu Ikeda

Rhythm of spring

unravels my sorrow

and wraps me calmly,

as if velvety rain

fills my blood vessels

with its silence

 

I’m in spring

Spring is in me

Sense of Spring | Yuu Ikeda

A blanket of the sun

runs around in me,

like a glass of whiskey does

Transitory warmth

makes me insensible

Hovering wind

turns pages of winter

Then,

I’m led to spring
