PostSubject: The lost art of poetry   Sat Nov 14, 2009 8:14 am

Wrote this around four years ago after watching one of my favorite anime movies...

The Tower

"As promised
after school
one day
I will go
to that tower"

The color of the sky was pale,
like that of an old photograph.
Overlooking the land were clouds
-white overwhelmed with blue and green-
whose edges seemed torn from paper.

It was Autumn then, and the trees
that sparsely lined the railroad stood
bare, but remained captivating-
to those, at least, that noticed them.
Various brown stones filled the gaps
between the wooden beams of the
railroad, which, like a mystery,
vanished into the horizon.

And far off into that distance,
beyond the limits of the train,
rose a tower, slender and white,
that seemed to separate the clouds
and lead to some other world.

Upon one of the endless
iron rails wavered a young girl,
adorned in the habiliments
of Autumn; the tower looming.
From her back hung a violin;
from her soul my soul, and in her
eyes- when she looked in mine-
dwelled the sorrows from feeling alone.

Back then, when we were younger,
it was easy- we made our promise.
But then we parted, and you fell
asleep, and we could only dream.
Back then, on that distant day, we
made a promise we couldn't keep.

The movie is called "The Place Promised in Our Early Days"
Here's the picture I had in front of me (a picture booklet came with the DVD that I have) when I wrote it

Geez Space, didn't know you had it in ya. Wink
It was extremely good. You based it off a movie? I think I might watch it. Wait...is it a Miyazaki movie?

It's made by future legend, Makoto Shinkai, who also did Voices of a Distant Star and most currently 5cm per second (which is the pic in my ava).

Not Miyazaki, but already he's being hailed as "The Next Miyazaki".
