The Garden of Poetry

By Yuu Ikeda

In front of me,
many flowers of words
are swaying,
emitting seasonal fragrances.

Every morning,
I breathe in these sweet
sometimes bitter scent,
every evening,
I fill my notebook
waiting for
silhouettes of words,
then,
every night,
I fall asleep
with memories of
the garden of poetry.
