Snowballs

It has been snowing for a while

and I dreamed of a world

in which the bullets
were replaced with
snowballs,
and the fighting men
turned into playing children
and the darkness in our hearts
slowly faded away...

 ちょっとの間、雪が降った。
私は夢見ていた――
そこでは、雪玉が弾丸に取って代わり、
戦士たちは、遊びに夢中の子どもたちに変わっていた。
そして人間の心の暗闇は、
ゆっくりと消えていったんだ…。
