It’s Your Lucky Day

  
Honey,
The sky is so blue today.
Gentle wind murmurs. Early summer flowers sway.
Crystal sea, if we stand at the dock of the bay.
I’ll say,
Jump! and swim to where your heart prays.

Honey,
Do you see it’s today.
Golden sun tunes all the moons to cocoon your dream way.
Fresh snow, if we sit at the top of the sleigh.
I’ll say,
Shoot! and fly to where your desire stays.

Honey,
it can be any day.
Summer, fall, spring, frost; keep their finger’s crossed as always.
Any time, if we do, not we may.
I’ll say,
everyday is your lucky day.

The Promise of Baby Tulip

  

I
won’t be seized by the fear of others
shooting up into the same sky.

I
won’t be withered even though
those taller shadows turn me blind. 

I
won’t give up, again, when winter
hunts my hope, makes me cry. I won’t die. 

I
now know, happiness’s like sunlight
success’s like the air, it’s the share, all desires.

I
now see, the sky’s also mine.
Keep dreaming, keep growing, one more try.

#It was a lovely day at Osaka Expo Park. I felt so free under the sunshine with a lot of beautiful tulips. There were so many things in my head while I was walking there. One of them is tulip is quite late bloomer (in compare to ume and sakura). I could feel the horror of tulip about waking up from a bulb and saw everyone, including tulip friends, had already full bloomed beautifully. 

Because I do. 

All around me is full of someone who is better, cooler, smarter than me. Grad school is always like this. But I guess I realize that is not a reason I should be afraid or run away. Although there are too many people who successes in the similar things before me, I still can be better, too, and I have a full right to have my own achievement. Even if I am the last baby tulip in the field, I am going to bloom, to stand under the spring blue sky and shine in my own way.
