Our Earth, gogyoshi by Taro Aizu, Japan




Our Earth

We have some places
where ugliness rules,
but more places
where beauty rules

on this blue Earth


Taro Aizu






La nostra Terra


Noi abbiamo dei luoghi

dove regna il brutto

ma abbiamo più luoghi

dove la bellezza regna

su questa Terra blu
