Translator's blog

From the translator’s journal ~ Animal communication ~

Tried for the first time
animal communication.

Thought I would understand
my cat Nana.
But, that was not right.
She is far more deep and
sacred than I thought.

Profound and sacred
when words are not spoken.

It’s the same for
human beings, Mom!
said Nana.

Need to cherish
the words not spoken.

No guessing, no reading,
but a generous heart to
understand with love.

Thank you, Nana!
