La poesie de Kiyumi, la broderie de Sayuru (Kiyumi's Poetry and Sayuru's Embroidery)
Director: Satoru Sugita
Kiyumi says that for her, writing poems is like placing fallen leaves on withered branches. She says she places words as if gently returning the leaves to their original place without ever watering them and expecting them to bloom. Every time Kiyumi writes one poem, her friend Sayuru embroiders one leaf on a book cover that she will use to cover Kiyumi's rainbow colored book of poetry.
