“Well our journey has started and today we will go on with our journey through the land of the rising sun. We have arrived on the airport of Tokyo on the so called “main Island” Honshu. It’s the biggest Island of Japan and on this part the most Japanese people live. It is here were we will encounter the ancient and the modern times of Japan.
Tokyo is the technology capital of the world, here the magic happens according to all technology we know nowadays. Tokyo is one big advertorial … look at the following image:”


lights screaming
buy me buy me buy me –
a Nightingale sings

blurs the street and senses
where once birds flew freely

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Beautiful ! This is exactly that sensation I get in such a big town : too much metallic, too much artificial light… it even scares the birds .
