It’s a dismal day here in Tokyo; although there’s a lingering hint of summer stickiness, it’s been raining all day.
It’s at times like these that I dream of running away to a tropical island. It’s at times like these that tropical islands seem like just a dream.
Here’s one that’s just three hours from Tokyo, and most definitely real.

There are some places
that cry out for humans to
people them with gods.
Churui Island, Lake Akan, Hokkaido
Islands, as clouds, are
vehicles of human dreams,
shapes we wish to be.

our grip on this earth!
Roots bind not our flesh.
Fukuura Island, Matsushima
You are an island,
tropical and inviting;
sea brimming with sharks.
