Japan Journey #1 – Shinjuku


This is where I was tonight
I was here with all of this
If I hadn’t shared the view
I felt I would be amiss

As the traffic and the lights
All around my senses swirled
And the taste, still faint, of meals
Out of this, or any, world

Fell onto my fading mind,
In parading glory passed:
I treasured new memories
That drove out the old
At last
