The River by Aine Nakamura -premiere-  May 2018


The depth of the sea
The light of the winter sun and
The warmth and unquestionable strength of the tree

go into me

From their greatness
From their sparkles
From each delicate branch

And I
give them back my love inside of me

From the skin of my face
From my finger tip
From my small eyelids

And I
Gradually become

The sea

The light

The tree

海の深さが 冬の朝の太陽の光が 木の優しさと凛とした強さが
その大きさから その輝きから その枝の一本一本から
私は私の中の愛を 顔から 指から まぶたから かえしてゆく

私はそのうちに 海になり、光りになり、木になるのだ
