I was told that there is a poem in the Art books, I believe it is the first of volume 1 or 2, I don't know which one, and about this poem Nagita says in the preface that it is her favorite poem. In it there are Candy and Terry on a hill , do you know what I am talking about? I was curious to know how Nagita describes Terry's voice in that poem.
Can any of you provide this information?
Here is the link to that poem:http://candyterry.com/ccpoems/ccpoem1.html
Really beautiful... and I didn´t know was her favorite!!!!
Also Igarashi´s drawing is so beautiful!!!
"Of all the Candy's poetry, this is my favorite piece. I spelled it
for a beautiful drawing of Candy and Terry on a hill."
(Translation and author's quote from her old guestbook)
"Look. That's the most ancient color of the World.
Shade of Sky and Water..."
Terry's calm whisper was brought to me on the gentle breeze
Then just passed by.
We have been looking toward the same direction for a long while
Instead of staring at each other.
Maybe he did not say a single word,
But my ears heard the dream like tone of serene note.
"Look,Candy. That's the Shade of Sky and Water,
The most ancient color of the World..."

Yes, I find it lovely too!
It is heartwarming that among all the poems she wrote this one, regarding Candy and Terry together, was her favorite!
I particularly liked the passage: "We have been looking toward the same direction for a long while
Instead of staring at each other."
Whose meaning might be: Love means not so much looking to each other but looking in the same direction!
Incredibly inspiring, true, poetic, and meaningful with regard to Candy and Terry!
Thank you Nagita!
