My Hometown KOBE

We visited my hometown, Kobe
after such a long time.

At a fraction of the sojourn time,
I looked for recollective scenery that live in my memory.
Kobe is a hilly town.

And there are many occidental buildings.

In childhood, we used to do the test of courage
at a ruined occidental bldg. on Mt. James.

When I was young, I had a free-floating anxiety
about the future
. At halfway up a steep hill
I looked back a panoramic view of KOBE City.

Then, the port town shot a hopeful look at me.
It was unforgettable bittersweet spring day.

I often hear it said that "Don't look back"
But , whenever I'm afield,
I allow myself to look back
hopeful hometown on that day.

We really enjoyed the delicious French cuisine
for lunch at the restaurant.
