  Nobutak Ueda
The Speed of Light Changed That Day :
The Destruction of  Hiroshima

Question Mark

In an  instannt that  morning, a flash
Touched my cheek.
My body no longer
Existed anywhere.
Light of different colors surrounded me.

People pray for me.
They say it was a mistake, but whose?
Mine
Yours
Ours

Rest in Peace?
With all this blood on the earth?
How soon
Will the people of the  earth be destroyed?
 

The Song of the Phoenix

Water birds slipping along the water's surface
Like the many spirits of children
Who have died.

Instantly turning to flame.
Sing the song of phoenix!

The foundation of our "national essence" is
nigimitama ( the soul of peace).

Sachimitama ( the soul of hapiness and
prosperity) takes the place of the "noble
spirits" of dead soldiers in our hearts.
