Akira Murata - wonderful artist from KORIYAMA city..FUKUSHIMA JAPAN
In November 2010 we have exchanged few words. This is what he wrote:
'my city….KORIYAMAcity..FUKUSHIMA JAPAN
very very beautiful area
Lake and river. forest. mountain. and, the sea.
little bit located in the north ..maybe it snows soon'
Dear Akira, I hope with all my heart you are safe...
Ode to Hope
at the center
of my life,
waves like grapes,
the sky's solitude,
you fill me
the complete sea,
the undiminished sky,
the orange earth,
so many gifts and talents,
birds soaring into their dreams,
and the sea, the sea,
chorus of rich, resonant salt,
touch the water,
we touch the sea,
And the waves tell the firm coast,
"Everything will be fulfilled."
It's a small world, when it trembles somewhere we all shake. I wish I could bring calm to it.
Thanks for visiting this space, I hope you are well. My thoughts are with Japanese people.
