Can we? Shall we? Escape to Japan?

Can we? Shall we? Escape to Japan?

We’ll watch the snowflakes dance over the railway tracks at night.

We’ll listen to the swoosh of the cars slipping down the icy road.

We’ll feel the fresh snow crunch beneath our feet.

We’ll fly down the hill and catch a glimpse of the mountains through the clouds.

We’ll hear the roof groan in the night under its snowy weight.

We’ll wait in the cold as the train glides slowly in.

We’ll shiver in our socks in a Samurai stronghold.

And survey the Mediaeval village from its slit windows.

We’ll imagine the meandering river as a swollen torrent when the snow melts.

And wonder about the people we watch in the street.

We’ll wake to the sun rising over the inland sea.

And the tall walls of concrete will guide our eyes to the sky above.
