Spring wind is very pleasant

And it whispers a cradle song

in my ear

I am in my dream.

Winter is very cold

So I wish you to stay by my side

From the bottom of my heart

- Saki Yasunobu, age 19


Looking for a sunflower

I am smiling

On a cold day

I found my destiny

It was him

- Nao Yamamoto, age 16



Summer: Swimming in the sea

Big Thunderhead in the sky

Autumn: A red dragonfly is flying

Look! The sunset is beautiful

Summer Vacation

- Yui Komoto, age 17



Somehow I am getting warmer

I look

You are not your usual self

You look charming

I want to talk with you

But I don’t know what to say

Before I was able to talk to you



Everyday I am happy to go to school

I am happy because I am able to talk

With you

But I can’t see you for a long time

Somehow I hurt

I cannot forget you


My heart is hurt whenever I look at you.


Do I like you?


You don’t like winter

So you shiver

You are exhaling white breath

Your face is blushing

You are gripping my hand

You gaze at me

I am attracted to your eyes

I always want to be near you

And keep you warm

I want to cover yourself with myself

And cuddle you!

I love you.


- Teppei Inoue, age 17
