Lake in FosaMagna


shiano omachi, Nagano, Aug, 2014

The lake before my eyes was deep in the sea twenty million years ago.

The house that viewed the lake for just one hundred years is fallen trees.

Someday, will where i stand return to the ocean?


I walk around the lake and pause,

And from a boat gaze up at the sky gently floating,

And feel as if the boat were falling into the sea of twenty million years ago.

I ask for an unused boat

And begin to bore holes in the outline of the lake.


This rotten house may have seen the depths of the lake.

With this boat we go towards the very depths of the sea, and to the sky above.
