41.FS001.The Colors of Light (Obersee, Germany)

 

The fog was like the icebergs on an immense tract of deserted shoreline that’s so THICK,
along Antarctic strETCHES.
Symbolic of an innocent guy who has spent his life imprisoned without eTHICK,
which ruined his life skETCHES.

Off and on, the blurred sunlight blended and turned the cloud vaguely brIGHT.
Just for a while, unveiled an unveiled pool of cobalt green came in sIGHT.

Reflected on the water is the cloud that seems like the mood from the abyssal benTHIC,
as bizzare as the feTCHES.
It might be like floating by the boomerang nebula since things were neoliTHIC,
being bored to tears like wreTCHES.

At the end, the sunlight managed to find a crevis in the cLOUD.
All of a sudden, a whole spectrum of brighter lights were aLLOWED.
Oh, that was much like the sound of fjord that is not too LOUD.
Miraculously dramatic changes in ‘The Colors of Light’.



42.FS002.Emerald Valley (接岨峡, Japan)


The profound vIEW
Far beyond a fEW
of those mountains in sight
the hidden part of the breathtaking tableau in blUE
Blue in green makes the color emerald

Deep into the subconscious mind
Far into the deserted land
So deep into the mountains
no one makes it there

Inside of yOU
resides a nEW
spectacle of the Emerald Valley flowing

into the lake
emerald lake
reflecting the colors of various sEES
The colors of those coniferous trEES
reflecting the ups and downs of
the complex mind of yours that keeps floating around



43.FS003.Bird’s Eye Prospect (Mesocco, Switzerland)

 

Wandering around the plain field
never knowing what you could do tomake it a game
that you might be finding so neat
though beating around the bush without reaching anywhere is worthless
so you have got to find the clue
to take off the ground and
fly 
over the land we all live

Floating like a songbird
overlooking the land
far below you
would probably give you the right clue
The prospects you get from fAR
above in the aIR
so high in the aIR
visibility is so clEAR
Unbeatably spectacular sight of what is
ahead of you can be seen

  



44.FS004.Limonnaya (Хабаровск, Russia)


Looking out the window all that I see is
forest
In my compartment there is Wolfgang from West Germany

Mila and Sveta form the heart of Moscow
are cheerful conductresses of the train.

Every once in a while they bring in our room some
Wafers of orange flavor and glasses of Russian tea.

Time and magpies fly to the city of Khabarovsk
Where we get off the train
Time to say Dasvidanya to my Limmonaya!



45.FS005.Firefly (Silver Spring,MD.U.S.A.)


There’s no more time left for us on the earth
It’s about time we left this wounded planet
No one knows how to breathe
Within the realm of sovereignTY
Radioactive densiTY
Men without generosiTY
Omnipresent atrociTY
Fireflies know how to fly out of hERE
I know they all glittER
They like nights bettER
Sooner or latER
Each of ‘em will pretend to be a shooting stAR
Flying from inner to outER
I would live on a stAR
That’s created by fireflies that once flew away from hERE
In pursuit of peace with warmER
Hearts and brightER
Skies and purER
Air of Firefly



46.FS006. Fly Blind


ObliviousLY
InsatiabLY
FinicalLY
VividLY

So jubilantLY
UnforgettabLY
IrreplacabLY
Mt. McKinLEY

Fly Blind       Fly Blind       Fly Blind
Fly as the east wind blows
Fly as the west wind blows
Fly as the south wind blows
Fly as the north wind blows

As you can see you’ll find it there
All the cool hip licks you want
Imagine and let yourself   Fly Blind



47.FS007.Lakes & Forests’ View (Joensuu, Finland)


Nights are so bright in the northern lIGHT.

Scandinavian nights are always brIGHT.
That’s the way it can be in SwedEN.
Trains stop in the forest all of a suddEN.
Unlike the way it is in the middle of ManhattAN.
Station wagon cafes are drivEN
into the forest where coffe and bread are givEN.

Don’t remember having to walk muCH.
Drivers were so kind I din’t even hiTCH.
That’s the way it might be in NorWAY.
I got picked up on the WAY.
They all said they were heading for the same place anyWAY,
back from the trekking trails that LAY
towards pulpit rock WAY
over Lysefjord’s gateWAY.

Hospitality is the keywORD.
None of these friendly guys are absURD.
That’s the Finnish way of treating yOU.
Finland welcomes what you dO.
You will be inviter to their homes in JoensUU.
Bars on the trains are packed and nEUmorous
Lakes & Forests’ VIEW.

 



48.FS008.Labyrinth (神流, Japan)


MoSEY on downhill right along the lake.

CoSY place known to be a wriggling lake.

Rambling days seem to be worthless
though it’s indispensable
at some points in my life.

YOU might think it’s boring lonesome trip.
FEW of these places sound familiar to you.

Sometimes when life gets stangnant being stranded,
floating around like this might be a good way to

cure your mind’s stanstill
although your goal is nowhere.
Purely natural maze of forest.
Labyrinth, Labyrinth.
In an ancient hotel, write a tune called ‘Labyrinth
that tells you the meaning of this aimless drifting is.



49.FS009.Fjord Sound (Geirangerfjord, Norway) 


Wonder who painted the flowers on the earth so flamboyANT.
All the fjords ‘round the world are so brilliANT.

No one really knows who wanted the creatures to exIST.
In two billion years, everything will be lost in the mIST.

Whatever dimensions you might be in, the sound of fjords will last forever more!



50.FS010.Far East Jingle (京都, Japan)

 

The cool fancy nights featuring those who want to be ones
that in the end, unveil the mistery of wondrous lights
that is in the east end of the whole world.
The golden island that sits sticking out of great Eurasia.
That’s where ‘Far East Jingle’ stays

out of rEACH.
if you dIVE
on the big red Sibeian trAIN.

Hard to rEAH
through the vIBE
of the Silk Road lANE.

Eastern bEACH
so alIVE
unaccesible seems to gAIN

Far more fascinaing awesome atmosphERE.
Stricking gems of high-end goods all yEAR
around.
People are so warm, nature is so wild, you’d find it hard not to stick around hERE!



51.KS001.かれいどすけーぷ (馬ヶ背, Japan)

 

変わりゆく車窓は まるで万華鏡
様々な彩りが揺れる

自然の色合いが溶け合ってゆき 霞んで
二度とない景色を

次々に繰り出してゆく
都会から自然のさなかへ

海に沿ってゆけば
離れ島や 砂浜にも

やがて夕陽が 微妙に変わりながら 溶け込んで
切れ目のない絵画 描きあげる

気がつけば何気ない寂れた町を歩いて
道端のカキツバタ眺め

記憶の中にある
花の色や 潮の香り

なぜか それらが
懐かしい想い出を運び込む
まるで昨日のこと
不思議に時は飛び

流れてゆくような旅の
変化に富んだ空気だけでも
どんな型にはまった旅より
楽しめるはず

特別なものは何もいらない
いつも耳を澄まして
どんな当たり前の
ものからも刺激を受け

つらい想いも
楽しい想い出も 重なって
長い時の流れ
飛び越え 結びつき

折り重なるように見える
過去から未来のあらゆる風景
いつか見たような町
以前にあった光景が続き

それは夢の中のような
前世の記憶の中のような
隙間なく幾重にも重なる
デジャビューのコラージュ

来たことのない筈の町
なんの思い入れもない筈の街角
なぜか旅愁がこみ上げ
脇道に入る

特別なものは何もいらない
いつも目を見開いていれば
全てのものが
眩く輝いて見える



52.KS002.二度とないこと(仏ヶ浦, Japan)

 

二度とないこと
二度とない奇跡
二度と来られない町

二度とないこと
二度と会えない人
二度と味わえない
たくさんのものがある

二度とないことほど
どんなものより
輝いて見える
でも 限りなく 切なすぎる
それでも どうしてもそれを
取り戻したいなら

時間という概念を取り払えば
それはいつまでも
あり続ける
一度でもあったことは
何度も求めなくても
いつまでも
あり続ける

永遠に
いつまでも
ここにある



53.KS003.輝かしいこの世界 (摩周湖, Japan)

 

この世界に 生まれて来て
それがなんだかわからなくて
楽しいこと 大変なこと
何の為にあるのか

大人という
絶対的な存在が
私の行く手を
阻み続ける

生きてゆけば 生きてくほど
何もわからなくなってくる
人のために 生きていると
自分がなくなってゆく

大人たちも
わからないのかも
どうして 私たちが ここにいるのか

私はだれなの
どこから来たの
そしてどこへ向かうの
私はだれなの 私はだれなの

輝かしい この世界
あらゆる色合いの奇跡
どんな人が誰のために
作り出したものなの

かけがえのない 不思議の国
迷い込み 気づいた頃には
離れたくない

私はだれなの どこから来たの
そしてどこへ向かうの
私はだれなの 私はだれ



54.KS004.青い坂を登り返す夏 (五色沼, Japan)

 

蝉がけたたましく騒ぎ立てる
アスファルトに灼熱の太陽が
やる気のないじめじめした空
生気のない人々の表情

焼米坂の焦燥にかられ
あらゆる矛盾をダークマターに例える
マスターがいるバーに入り込み
資本主義の毒素を取り除く

三億年前にアンモナイトが 泳いだ町を過ぎて
たどり着いた町はひとけもなく
うつむいたネオンが首をもたげる

誰かが決めた 流行りの色に
八方美人に美辞麗句並べる
勝ち組という腐敗物蔓延る
そんなことはわかってると言うけど

意識しないでいれば 誰もが 気がつかない
影の存在が今 手綱をひいて
水のバランスを 乱し続ける

そんな今こそ
青い坂を登り返せ
夏は熱い力に満ちてる筈
青い坂を登り返す夏



55.KS005.春雷 (榛名湖, Japan)

 

あ~ 春雷 激しく 訪れた後にはまた
静かな 静かな 春の日が訪れ来る
静かな 静かな あ~

あ~ 小鳥が青空を 飛び交っている間に
小さな 蝶たちも 花の上を飛び交うよ
静かに 静かに あ~

草原は明るく 陽に照らされ
水面は眩しく 輝いて
何もかもが 生き生きと
何もかもが きらきらと なる時だ

あ~ 時間が静かに 回転し続けるよ
平和な 流れに 乗って

草原は明るく 陽に照らされ
水面は眩しく 輝いて

うとうとした時間は 長くは続かない
時間の流れは速く 稲妻を呼ぶ



56.KS006.光 (浪江, Japan)

 

静かな浪江の浜で
陽が暮れようとしている
あたりは紅に照り
明日を待つだけ

波に打たれながら
輝く海原眺め
呆然としてる時が
唯一の静まり

やがて波も激しくなり
我が身を包み込む
心が波の中に
だんだん入りこむ

何がなんだかわからない
手足は氷のように
輝くものはどこに 暗い
暗い波の中で
何を考える暇もなく
るものはどこに
ああああ~ 明日まで

の道は途中までで
更に沈むは我が身よ
届かぬ深海のように
深い時間が流れる
やがて夜は空け朝日が
海を照らし輝かせる
波の
幸せを呼ぶ
波の



57.KS007.迷路とパズルの町 (Wanaka, New Zealand)

 

あてもなく彷徨う旅路
清く澄み切った空気の
南半球のこの島の旅で見た
自然 涼しげな町
ひとけのない
山の凹みに
こんな町があるなんて不思議

迷路とパズルの町
巨大な迷路に身をまかせ
冴え渡るパズル
森の中に染み入る

を逸れて
小高い山へ
そして見渡す
湖の



58.KS008.フィヨルドへ続く道 (Doubtful Sound, N. Z.)

 

金木犀がオレンジの絨毯を紡ぐ秋
コスタリカの輝き知り尽くす人が言った

人口に膾炙した時代の寵児が
跳梁跋扈するこのすさんだ世界には
マナプーリへ続く道は見えない

メディアが買収されてて真実が消される冬
古今東西伝わるべきことが伝わらない

正義感のあるものだけが干され
傀儡政府の御用学者笑う
正義と真実は劣勢にあり

スポイトの水投じて大河の水阻む春
森も木も見た方がいいと言った夏の夜

純粋なものは絶滅危惧種に
分野を問わずに腐敗したこの世
パラダイムシフトはそこにきている

音と光の
奇跡の時空
ダウトフルサウンドへ続く道



59.KS009.セベレ峠の夢 (Tatranska Javorina, Slovakia)

 

13月の太陽 スランツェト
時空を超えてやってきた
眩い光を放つ
ルピナスのような
不思議な神秘のうねり

次元の割れ目から
さらってラッパ吹いたっていいさ
ちぎり交わした夏のフラミンゴ
飛んで 跳ねて 駆け回る
川の流れに足音も立てず スランツェト

さっぱりわからないさ
違う次元の波動で起こる
あらゆる概念は未知の時空
蛇腹でカボス食べても
何しても
セベレの峠を越える時
霧の中
絵画の世界が現実になる

境地を見渡す
光っている 棚田と奇岩と湖が
争いごとだけの この世と まるで違う 時空
エディアカラ紀の海のよう
絶妙な温度感
バジルとビーンズの秋の時空
限りなく続く光と音の世界へ



60.KS010.アオスジアゲハ舞う丘へ (西伊豆, Japan)

 

たとえそれが
アオスジアゲハでも
ギガンジウムでも

たとえそれが
柱状節理でも
湖没樹木でも

なにか 好きなことに
ハマることが 大切
そしてそれを
とことん つきつめて
極めることさ

大切なことは
役に立たないこと
無駄なことに見えるかも
誰のためにもならず
ときには周りに迷惑かも

でもそれが 本当の幸せ
無駄に見えることが
他の生物と違う
人間のアイデンティティー

すぐに できる ことばかりしてると
入り口で彷徨う
すぐに できない 深みのあることは
時間がかかる

時には 深いことは
変なことに 見える

普通なことと
変なことがある
普通じゃないと
不安になる 人もいるけど
みなが同じでは変なのかも

ひとりしか 同じ人はいない
他の人と違う
あなたが生まれた証
アオスジアゲハ舞う丘へ

 


 91.DV001.Ju-la-pi-lu-ka-cha-di (Sligo Creek,MD.U.S.A.)

Ju-la-pi-lu-ka-cha-di

Along Sligo Creek, ride a bIKE.
Nice scent of hot summer hIKE.

SqUIRrels are scurrying around wild mulberry trees.
SpUR-of-the-moment splurge on the ‘Explorer’.
SpURting summer days of cycling
StIR the land near the cathedral.

Just freeze some of my diet coke.
Reese, Snickers, and Doritos.

PARkway goes right along the stream of Rock Creek.
MARking the highlights of summer vacation.
MARs, Twix, and some Honey Roasted.
BARs of junk foods paradise.

Ju-la-pi-lu-ka-cha-di


92.DV002.Idiosyncrasy(Umeå,Sweden)

Frantic Scatting walking down the hallway is just like when you tap down the stairs.
All kinds of idiosyncrasy when you’re not tipsy is so neat.
Flipping your pencil while you fill out the form is not as weird as frantic scatting.
Idiosyncratic tendencies. Idiosyncratic tendencies. Idiosyncratic tendencies.
Idiosyncratic tendencies help you stay well.


93.DV003.Vinterhavn(Trondheim, Norway)

The train stopped at Storlien, a frontier of Sweden out in the middle of nowhere.
That’s where you started talking to me totally out of the blue.
We both crossed the border into the Norwegian rANGES
of mountains where you said
‘It was something that chANGES
the rest of our journey around western fjords.
Trondheim lies on the west of all.
Trondheim knows the rest of all.


94.DV004.Highlights  of Citylights (Cambridge,MA.U.S.A.)

The hub is where the jazzy things are happening every single night!
The tension chords! multi-modal! polyrhythms!
Those Berklee days I jogged from Cambridge to Boston to be jazzier!

Cool stuff
that I come across
while I’m asleep
might turn out to be
the melody of my song

Cool stuff
that I come across
while I’m awake
might turn out to add some taste to the song I’ve written

Cool licks
that I come across
while I’m writing
might turn out to be
the melody of my tune

Cool licks
that I come across
while I’m playing
might turn out to add some taste to what I improvise

‘cause I want to live away from the city
though would be better off living around the campus
I
dicided to do my homework at school
Sounds like it’s a peace of cake to do your homework right there
That way I can run to school every morning
I see you’ve got nothing that you have to carry around
That’s right I’ve got both of my
hands free for jogging
When it’s a tough homework you find yourself running back home so late and end up crossing the river to see Highlights of Citylights


95.DV005.Tension City (Forest Hills,MA.U.S.A.)

Is it kind of weird that I prefer to come home
to where it is surrounded by forest, hills and waterSCAPES,
while I’m musician who is pretty much into the type of music
that implies urban modernization of some gorgeous citysSCAPES.
Right in between those two wholly different thINGS,
there has to be the reason why he sINGS,
I need to have both of those two swinging wINGS
to make my life a
bright, exciting, diversified one.
Something a finicky guy like me can be satisfied to the point
where I might wanna shout out ‘Yeah!’


96.DV006.Swifty (Иркутск, Russia)

Lonesome journey continues until I met you there
in Paris of Siberia where it was to be my last destination of this trip.
When I first saw you,
I never knew that I was gonna meet you later in a lethargic atmosphere.

On the dismal drizzly day,
heading for lake Baikal right through the dense white mist
that covered not only the landscape but also our flowing mind.
On the Swifty,
The pieces of chocolate you gave left the taste of bittersweet memories of Siberia.


97.DV007.Drowsiness (指扇, Japan)

One of the tranquil Drowsy days,
out of work for a couple of months and 16 days.
Fretting is not the thing I want.
Just keep it laid back.
Never worry about what’s lying ahead of me,
lying on the floor.

Optimistic drowsiness comes in through the open windows.
Lay things aside way down the hall.

Daydreaming might be what I’ve done.
They might say that’s the way you somehow hang in there.


98.DV008.Bumpy Vamp (서울특별시, Korea)

What you’ve been telling me is totally wrong,
as far as I’m concerned.
As you might have noticed,
there’s some bumpy roads lying ahead of you.
Reshuffling,moving, job-hopping.
Out-of-the-frying-pan-into-the-fire type thing
might be something seen once in a while,
but sit upright and keep striving for some natural thing
that is not too tense or too laid back then you would surely
get out of the vicious cycle.
That would let you get rid of the bump
and that’s the time your steady glide sets in.
That’s the way it works!
That’s the reason I am saying,
‘What you’ve been telling me is totally wrong!’


99.DV009.Take the F train to J St.(Brooklin,NY.U.S.A.)

So, take the ‘F’ train down to ‘J’ strEET.
Oh, Sadowsky guitars are so nEAT.
New york is a place with exciteMENT.
You might finally know what I MEANT.

HANging around the corners of the Big Apple to SEE
HANdy proof of the fact that it’s a place for Typsy GypSY.

Take the ‘F’ train to Bowery strEET.
Fake the melody off down bEAT.


100.DV010.Déjà Vu (Paris, France)

Some say there no meaning to lIFE.
Meaning to war and some strIFE.
You have the chores as a housewIFE.
And work so hard all your lIFE.

Two weeks of oceanscapes in PraiaNO.
The ballgame I saw with BruNO.
Relaxing days spent playing UNO.
Debating to see yes or NO.

All the fond mem’ries do maen a lot to my own perception
as we keep recollecting each of them.

All of those fond mem’ries.
They all end so quickly.
There’s an ending to every single scene.
All of those fond mem’ries.
They all end so quckly.
End in a flash.
Don’t they mean anything?

Reminiscence of all the things,
of all the timeless experience of Déjà Vu.
Once it’s been fermenTED.
as you wanTED.
never ever fade away.
