I can't stop thinking at this song as a precursor of Sekka No Shinwa (the Legend of the Snow Petals). Takase Kazuya weaves a round arrangement, able to evoke the vastness of an empty sky with whirling wind. A wind, as this song says, that can bring new life.

Eiko words are always more introspective and emotional than Kotoko's. The slow, solemn, female voice of Eiko and the joyful melodic line merges wonderfully with the restless background produced by Kazuya, in one of their best joint works ever.

I've been cherishing this translation for some years now, but I finally decided on a gentle request of a visitor of my Blog, which is also a great fan of Eiko and loves to dance her songs.
