Kitaro's Poem September 1986
I send a message of sound
Towards the sky
Engulfing empty space.
Soaring far beyond grasp,
High above mountaintops,
Beyond Ocean waves,
Stretching to reach the Andes
And lightly touching Nepal,
Watching as the sounds flow;
Listen as you feel the wind blow.
Nature is colored with romance.
Unfolding a drama day by day
Plants breathe a rhythm.
Insects play their melody.
Light flies as wind cries.
Now catch the sound & feel the light!
By feeling things which are with life,
Innocents respond to the delicate sigh
Of the world, weaving their own dream.
Dreams which spread throughout the world
People begin to sing harmonies of love;
This is a beginning.
Connecting the dream
To the color of your breathless heart.
Peace and tranquility, you need only to sing
It is for you.
