The Land of Dreams

Though this poem reflects on life experiences far beyond those to which I could feasibly understand after my relatively sequestered 21 years of existence, I hope I am not precluded from saying that you related them all beautifully and captured a great wisdom in this poem.


Language is a funny thing. I see that this was written in Japanese originally, and if that is the case, it might be unfair to say that the line "Your lips are for kissing," sounded a bit cliche. However, it's certainly possible that something gets lost in the translation from one language to the next, and I suppose that criticism should be taken with a grain of salt. This aside, "Your skin is there to feel the breeze on your finger as it points to the sky" was especially brilliant, and all in all, I loved the poem. :)
