A gift from a poet having watched the passage of 100 years of time This is a beautiful anthology of poems by Japanese most famous, most familiar poet Michio Mado, weaved with photographs of contemporary artists. Capturing a small happiness normally passed by in this chaotic world of today, poems of Michio Mado, who becomes 101 years old this year, are written with gentle wording, from unique point of view, like seeing through eyes of the universe.
