Chuck Overby's Henoko Collage チャック・オバビーさんの辺野古コラージュ・詩

I would like to share Chuck Overby's Henoko collage and poetry, from his visit to Okinawa on June 23, 2007 (The Battle of Okinawa Memorial Day).

As my Article 9-Sadako crane

settled on

Henoko’s razor wire

dance of death --

this nearby beach beauty

invited hope.

Purple Passion


Henoko’s razor wire

both dance

across the

fringes of my mind.

Chuck Overby is founder of Article 9 Society in the U.S. He was a pilot of a B-29 bomber in the Korea War. Today is the 60th anniversary of the start of the Korean War.

  1. I've got a paper crane Dr. Overby gave us 3 or 4 years ago! I'm much surprised and happy to find the same paper crane on the homepage. I'm an English teacher and teach a small number of junior high students in Japan. The text book I use has a lesson on Sadako and her paper cranes. So, I'd like to show this page to my students. Thank you very much!
