A pattern poem for this wonderful collection:

The series of seasons certainly pushes forward,
unexpectedly i'm startled via the finishing of the year.
Lifting my eyes I trap sight of the wintry weather crows,
Calling mournfully as though desirous to complain.
the daylight is chilly instead of gentle,
Spreading over the 4 corners like a cloud.
a chilly wind blows fitfully in from the north,
Its unhappy whistling filling courtyards and houses.
Head raised, I gaze towards Spring,
yet Spring can pay no recognition to me at all.
Time a galloping colt glimpsed via a crack,
the faucet [of loss of life] on the door has its predestined time.
How may still I no longer be aware of, person who has left the world,
And for whom floating clouds are already familiar?
within the backyard there grows a rosary-plum tree:
Whose sworn friendship makes it attainable to endure.

Leonie, ein Teenie, die gerade wieder das Wochenende bei Ihrem Papa, wie alle 14 Tage verbrachte, wollte mehr über die sogenannte Römervilla erfahren. Doch je mehr sie und ihre Freundin Patricia rausfanden, desto geheimnisvoller und unwirklicher wurde es.

Wieso will niemand in der Villa wohnen?

Sind tatsächlich ein paar Menschen, die dort einige Zeit wohnten oder arbeiteten, auf unerklärliche Weise gestorben?

Was hat es mit den komischen Zeichen auf sich, die auf der Innenseite des Kamins eingeritzt sind?

Wer hat sich überhaupt die Mühe gemacht und warum auf der Innenseite?

Und warum funktionieren die Taschenlampen nicht immer?

Leonie und Patricia sehen sich mit der Zeit immer mehr mysteriösen Rätseln und Aufgaben gegenüber. Ob Sie das Rätsel wirklich lösen können?

The anthology comprises poetry, fiction, and drama, drawing on Okinawa's designated tradition and subtropical normal surroundings to express the feelings and tensions found in daily life. Tōma Hiroko's poem "Backbone" juxtaposes the common surroundings of aquamarine seashores and subtropical wildlife with the outfitted surroundings of America's army bases. tales by means of of Okinawa's so much dynamic modern authors demonstrate vast breadth, from the maintenance of island dances and burial practices in Sakiyama Tami's "Island Confinement" and "Come Swaying, Come Swinging" to the daring, disquieting subject matters of violence and luxury ladies in Medoruma Shun's "Hope," "Taiwan Woman," and "Tree of Butterflies." The crown jewel of the anthology, Chinen Seishin's play The Human Pavilion, relies on an notorious ancient incident during which Okinawans have been wear show in the course of a 1903 commercial exhibition in Osaka. In his 1978 masterpiece, Chinen depicts the relentless strain on Okinawans to turn into extra Japanese.

Disputes among the USA and eastern governments over development of a brand new marine airbase at Henoko have ended in the resignation of Japan's best minister, the election of an anti-base governor, and repeated protests. Islands of Protest bargains a compelling entrée right into a advanced tradition, one marked by means of wartime decimation, relentless discrimination, and fierce resistance, but frequently overshadowed through the clichéd proposal of a steady Okinawa so without end depicted in Japan's mass media.
