The sun slowly cools

Simple sand ideograms on the ground

Domain disruption

The freezing of living things begins

The sun slowly sets

Cloud hieroglyphs in the sky

Domain breach

The fossilization of living things begins

Space and time change

Time travel is a disorder of causality

Going into space,

We can’t touch the heart of the earth

Magma burns us

 

Human energy changes

Humans on Earth move by attraction

Human energy is converted

Humans in space move without gravity

Jump into space-time,  jump over space-time

Solve all your problems in zero gravity

Leave behind the sadness, leave behind the suffering

Harmonize to infinite joy

Become a flying soul

On Munemi Eigel's Inspiration

Munemi Eigel was born in Kyoto, Japan in a traditional family that produced kimonos. She is a retired math teacher and lives in Columbus, Ohio. She has written more than 500 poems and is planning on publishing an illustrated collection of her poetry soon. The following poem, Building, is a part of a larger collection entitled Seven Poems. The seven poems that make up this collection have been translated from Japanese and will be published in The UJ.

“I was a teacher of mathematics for many years, but poetry has always been my passion. I want to write poems that resonate with my soul and that move the reader in a similar way. I find inspiration for my poetry in the traditional culture I grew up in, but also in pop culture and all elements of culture in between. In particular, I am inspired by works of art, film, music, and literature, both classic and modern.”
