It is Bon in Japan, now.
It is the special night when Japanese
people go out and eat boiled octopus.
It sounds fun, but it does not mean that.
Bon (or Obon) is a Japanese traditional event to
commemorate one's ancestors. It is generally
celebrated in mid-August although it varies from
region to region, and it is the period of praying
for the repose of the departed spirits.
Back when I was living in Japan,
I had three beautiful girls.
Many years have passed since they went to
heaven, but I still miss them so much and yearn
after the happy days when we were together.
I wish and like to believe that they
are at peace and happy in heaven.
