From the translator’s journal ~Verbal war~

Verbal war is going on
beside the battlefield
of Ukraine.

Danger is increasing.
Words are double-edged swords.
They hurt both sides.

Words can become
either the Sun or Boreas.
How can we find
the words of the Sun embracing all?

How can we find
the words of wisdom?

Can’t we find accord/unity
instead of division/enmity?

All of us are facing now
the common enemy,
the climate crisis.

We have no time
to fight against each other.
Now is the time to be united
to protect the Mother Earth.

Dear world leaders,
Peace is on your shoulders.
Let us now trust in your leadership!
