It has been more than 20 years since I have written a book called the first poem book of ” crossover bridge” which include the days
of I started composing poems from 1987 (42nd year of Showa era) till the end of 1989 (64th year of Showa era). And, this time I was accepted to publish the second poem
This book is author’s self-selection of 500 poems out of about 3,000 poems which are pieces from about the length of 10 years during 1989 (1st year of Heisei era) till 1998 (10th year of Heisei era). Some of them are little comical poems differ from others, but I included them with my thought of “Well, sometimes it good to have like these kind of poems.” These are arranged in roughly a chronological order, but some parts are shifted as necessary. I was in the late middle age which was 37 to 47 years old at that time, and had experienced a pretty rough life, but I want to know if I was able to express these things. But, I think receiving Jyo-mo literary award in 1989 (1st year of Heisei era) and Gunma literary award in 1995 (7th year of Heisei era) which were both my goals was a fruit from the effort. But, I cannot deny this fact had influenced in a minor way on my later work with a sense of exhaustion and floating.
