Found this on my phone. It was when I was trying to take the pic of the super moon last month, from the hotel room in Berlin. Didn't look back until now but this turned out to be kinda nice, like an actual drawing.

The “Hida, Gifu Prefecture” slide in here is some kind of mistake that Google Plus made. The photos in that part are from Kamikochi, which is actually part of Matsumoto. Google Plus doesn’t seem provide any way for me to change it.

+Naoko Smithが昨日書いたすごくいい新しいブログエントリーです。
 ·  Translate
米国の大学院卒業を機に夫と結婚し、昨年の5月に夫の住むこの大都会、花のみやこ東京に引っ越して来た。それから一年近く経とうとしている最近になってようやく、東京に住んでいる、という「気」がするようになってきた。というのも、今まではどこか自分の居場所が不透明と言うか、東京に居を構えてはいるものの、吹きすさぶこの東京砂漠が日々吐き出すようにオファーしてくれるものの数々を、上手く消化しきれていない、そんな気がしていたからだ。 二月最後の金曜日、新宿の...

+Naoko Ishikura translated a great short poem by Shuntaro Tanikawa. I’ve not read many of Tanikawa’s poems, but of the ones I have read so far, I like this one best. Here’s the full text:

The poet

The poet always looks in the mirror, whenever there is a mirror,
In order to check whether or not he is a poet
It's his own theory that we can't tell if one is a poet by reading a poem, but
We can tell at first glance by looking in the mirror
The poet is dreaming of his face becoming a postage stamp one day
If possible, he says he wants to become a real cheap stamp
Because that way, he gets to be licked by many people
The wife of the poet is cooking yakisoba noodles
With a sulky look

A few days back, +Naoko Ishikura also translated another Tanikawa poem, “A lyric of Tokyo”:
