Modern Life

In
summer

shivering
in
an air-conditioned
room

I
slurp
hot
udon
noodles

In
winter

sweating
in
a over-heated room

I
enjoy
my ice cream

Success
Story


What
a lovely girl
my daughter
is!

I
sent her
to
a Roman Catholic
kindergarten

where
children
wore
pretty uniforms

She
looked perfect

I
was
sooo proud
of
her



Twenty
years later

what
a shock

she's
now
a Roman Catholic!

Merry Christmas
&
A Happy New Year


The
whole country
celebrates
Christmas

from
mid-November

Everyone
talks about
pastries
and parties

and

Christmas trees
and
golden bells

Santa Clauses
and
illuminations
are
everywhere!

On
26th December

Jingle Bells
and
all the
decorations

suddenly
disappear

as
koto music
takes over
and
people
rush out

to buy
rice cakes

no one
anymore
is talking
about
Christmas


instead

people
are busy

making plans
to visit

Shinto shrines
and more
Shinto shrines

all over
Nippon

I'm
living
in two
different
countries

aren't I?

Happy New Year

Our hearts
were
full of
Love
and
Peace
on
Christmas Day

a
week
later

husband and wife
are
ready
to fight

and
so
is
the world

Winter Walk

After
I
had
a silly fight
with my
father

I
put
all the money
I have
into
my pocket

and
go out
into
the cold wind

without
knowing
where
to go

a friend's place?

no

grandma's place?

it's too far

I find
a bread shop
open
and
it looks
warm

so
I
go in

buy
a loaf of
raison bread

The
store woman
says

thank you
with a
big smile

I say
thank you
too

Suddenly
I
notice

my anger
is
gone

Parents

I
looked after
the
children

from morning
to night

while
you
were
busy

I
sang

showed them
animations

even
taught them
English

Your
children
loved
me!








Now
you
say

I
didn't do
a good job

Have destroyed
your children

Tell
me

what
I
should
have done
better?

Tell
me

who
was there
except
me
TV?

Glad
to hear that


I
meet
many
young girls
everyday

says
my husband

I
talk
to them

laugh
with them

sometimes
have
lunch
with them

they
keep me
young

Kyoto

Along
the narrow
road
in Kyoto

among
the cars
moving
like
snails

what
I saw
was

a
shiny
red
porsche

Do Not Disturb

I was
writing
an important
letter
when
my 5-year-old son
wanted me
to play
with him

Several
times

I've
told him

not to
interrupt me
when
I'm
busy




Anyway
later
when
I talked
to him
he was playing
seriously
with his
toy trains

He
said
simply

Don't
disturb
me
Dad!
