24 Poems and Photographs of Life After the Great Earthquake of East Japan
I consider the poems that I have written to be prayers to the souls who were engulfed in the disaster and, against their will, lost their lives. The poems are words of encouragement to those who have undergone this ordeal and now must live on. They offer us a perspective with which every one of us who lives in this post-disaster world has been entrusted.(from Preface to the English Edition)
