【Exhibition】”walks words and days" is being held! [2/7 (Tue)-3/25 (Sat)]

Hello, this is Yamamoto, the manager.
The exhibition of words with the theme of "walking" has begun!

From 2/7 (Mon.) to 3/25 (Sat.) at ARUKU COFFEE & GALLERY, a 2-minute walk from Otsuka Station, there will be an exhibition of words by Shohei Koyama, a poet and owner of Jiyucho. We are holding a walk!

Only with the scenery that my voice can reach
it's not enough

Only with the scenery within reach
it's not enough
one footstep
one footprint
Because I can't pack everything up until now
I won't include my life up until now

At the place I finally arrived at, you
we are speechless
will you laugh
you will cry

Embrace that truth
I will continue walking today
From the theme work "Walk" of "Walking through words and days"

This one is part of the work I wrote as the theme work for this exhibition.

Whether you're heading somewhere or trying to walk without a destination, walking means using your own strength to move your legs and build up one step at a time.

When I'm walking, I don't bother thinking, "Why am I walking?" I think I know a little bit why.

why am i here now
Come to think of it, this happened to me too.

I hope that you will enjoy this exhibition while leisurely thinking and envisioning such things.

Along with the exhibition, a collection of 76 poems, "Kotoba to Hibiki wo Aruku", will be on sale at the venue. Please take a look at it.
