Shizuka & Miyatsu
Western poets say that life is transitory and beautiful. One example of this is the Japanese tea ceremony, Simple beauty, without excess, but possessing a deep spirituality. These are my values. Beauty is the status quo, but only the beauty of words and deeds remain.
Birds and trees
The World is full of beauty. It is not easy to discover beauty in all things, but the beauty of nature is undeniable. There is beauty in birds, trees and even pebbles. All you have to do is uncover this beauty in everything.
I listen to myself attentively in silence
I don’t care much about money. What matters to me more is living and feeling. I feel wealthy in developing a deep consciousness. That’s why I think art is precious. A good work of art nourishes the spirit and I admire the person who created it. I think one good spirit cultivates another good spirit.
It seems that in this world a sense longing is an important condition. It doesn’t matter how many poems I write. If just one touches you, I will be filled with joy. One good spirit cultivates another good spirit. I am in solitude, but I know that I am not alone.
The way to be alone The way the sky goes down The way birds fly The way fish swim The way the river flows I want you to teach me those If I could Be like them It would simply be Magnificent
*Note: The “Tamayura” Collection is only available in a bilingual French-Japanese version.
