The Cause

Curtains are quivering.

Morning breeze is the cause.

The sound of a clock is resounding.

Morning stillness is the cause.


・, ・, ・, ・, ・, ・, ・,


Your yawn caresses my left ear.

Morning comfort is the cause.

My kiss warms your right eyelid.

Morning loneliness is the cause.

Our Skins

You want my skin like the blue sky.

I want your skin like cherry blossoms.


You bring me a craving for vulnerability.

I lead you to a craving for eternity.
