from Journey: TRIP 7
--Shuntaro Tanikawa (trans Takako Lento) 
The rocks are in harmony with the sky
It is Poetry
I cannot write it  
There is no way to reach words
by working on silence
I will try to arrive at this silence
by polishing words  
The tree is shaped like a tree
singing in the wind
It does not matter where it stands  
If I feel just as I see
all will glow in beauty
If I could write like I see
time would cease
