The wind blew

20 Jun

On a train.

Reading a book.

The window is opened.

The moment the train enters

the tunnel,

strong wind blew

blowing the pages of the book.

Suddenly a bookmark that I never noticed being there

falls on the floor.

I pick up.

On the bookmark it says

成功するまで続けず

途中であきらめてしまえば、

それで失敗である。 (松下幸之助)

If you don’t try until you are successful,

and if you give it up half way,

only then, it is a failure.

(Yukinosuke Matsushita)

****************

Sometimes

the right words fall upon from nowhere,

like it was meant to be.
