Translator's blog

From the translator’s journal ~An Advent gift~

Received a gift of chocolate
in a pretty little can
with a playing cat on the lid.

The cat playing with
a white butterfly
reminds me of my blog
written October 15.

I feel as if
my sweet memory
is canned in as chocolate.

What a lovely gift!
I will keep my memories
and hope in it
after the chocolate is gone…

Advent is a Season of Hope!
