Surrounded by darkness
with a strange sense of comfort.

The woods,
the branches
enclose me with their limbs.

Lifeless as it may seem,
is here with me.

As I depart,
I promise I will return
and your presence
will be revealed.

Now that I've returned--
is this the same place?

The sun now shines bright
the woods,
the branches
have opened themselves up
and a whole new world
awaits me.

I never knew
this beautiful, blue ocean
surrounded this promontory.

it's amazing to see
the doves circle the ocean.

Oh, there you are
walking so slowly
on a deserted path.

How different--
in the dark
in the light...
