The wandering future with " Woman " and " Man " Japanese calligraphy

Maybe, she might to be waiting for someone.
Encounter and farewell.

Something is waiting for her.

世の中は かくこそありけれ 吹く風の  目に見ぬ人も 恋しかりけり
紀 貫之 (872 – 945)    古今和歌集

This world  want to meet  wind blows   even can't see  miss the man       
Ki no Tsurayuki (872 – 945) Kokin Wakashū

Between the two, the word is not required.
one man, and woman.

What's reflected in their eyes ?

天つ空 とよのあかりに 見し人の  なほ面影の しひて恋しき
大納言 公任 (966 – 1041)  新古今和歌集

the firmament in dim light seen woman   beautiful appearance very miss    
Fujiwara no Kintō (966 – 1041) Shin Kokin Wakashū

They will continue to penetrate into no one knows the other side.
As if there was nothing there.

Without even leaving the trace.

恋ひ死なば 恋ひも死ねとや 玉ほこの  道行人に ことづてもなき
柿本 人麻呂  拾遺和歌集 

if heartbreak love die sharp halberd  passing man nor message
Kakinomoto no Hitomaro (662 – 710) Shūi Wakashū

" 女 " (nyo, or onna). It is translated as woman.
This character is written by Kanzi, Regular script.
Etymology : Pictogram
woman with breasts kneeling or standing.
The form of this character I looks like a mother that holding a child. 
Feminine soft impression has been contained.

A lot of meeting and parting. Port Yokohama.

" 男 " (nan, or otoko). It is translated as male, man, husband, etc.
This character is written by Kanzi, Regular script.
Etymology : Ideogrammic compound
    田 (field) + 力 (power)
Man has been represented as a farmer. 
This character reminds directly to "male" to us.

Port Yokohama view from dusk till dawn.

  使徒行伝 第18章 第21節 

but taking his leave of them, and saying, "I must by all means keep this coming feast in Jerusalem, 
but I will return again to you if God wills," 
he set sail from Ephesus.
  Acts 18:21

God bless you.

    Thank you for all.
    Excellent post !

  31. 現代の映像と古典の歌との斬新な組み合わせですね。モノクロの写真が想像をかきたてます。黄昏の横浜を想像しました。一度きり行った横浜は土砂降りの雨、でも赤レンガ、ベイエリア、中華街と歩きました。また行きたいです。神戸も横浜も港町ですが、スケールがちがうと感じました。
