The Light of Life

Life is transparent, warm and swirls randomly like a soft light.
And it constantly changes...
Life illuminates itself and then it begins to illuminates a new life.
A sprouted mass of innumerable lights become a flow before long,
and then become the part of the life-throb of ages. 
That ties life, this moment now.

生命は、柔らかい光のように透明で、暖かく、揺らぎ、そして移ろいゆく。
光り輝く命は、自ずからを照らし出し、また別の新しい命を灯し出す。
萌え出づる無数の光の群れは、やがて流れとなり、
幾世代にも渡る鼓動の一部となって、いま私の命を繋いでいく。
