Cicada's Call

Into the bright world, air heavy with moisture, lush green leaves and bark crawling alive, the cicada sends his call. Perched on a nearby tree, another one buzzes her wings in response. There's not enough time, and the days move ruthlessly on. Summer's end will be here soon.

NHK World Haiku Masters July 2017 - American English narrator in Tokyo - アメリカ英語ナレーター 東京

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer so far and staying cool! Here in Tokyo, it's growing very hot and humid. I should be used to it already after living here for so many years, but it's like a shock every year... I'm surviving, but already looking forward to autumn!

I just wanted to share with you the July episodes of NHK World Haiku Masters that I provided the narration for. This is a regular program that I've been narrating, and it's truly an honor and joy to work on this as all the staff are kind people, and being able to read these beautiful haiku is such a treat.

Please check out the videos here and here!
