grey marriages

.

the long plains of black as night, as crow
an unseen face, images dissolving, in the

sun, celebration, of winds waking a cloud
the shades of white

rice paper, laid upon her painter’s table
as black and white

create grey marriages, moving as slow
as the ancient turtle, as fast as a hungry

cry at dawn
a small bowl of green tea

a Chinese opera playing, so sweet, delicate lovers
oh, the first kiss, and the last

so very opaque, and strikingly calm
the night and the day, as song

a hint of spring, upon my easel
grey marriages, absorbed in the wind

we dine, in our hearts, between
the light and the dark

grey marriages, the chi of quiet’s

music, so thin, as we wait

together, a partner of contrast
the kind night, invites a day

of shadows and simplicity
for the Chinese brush painter’s

way of making her quiet
a grey marriage, of brush and symphony

a celebration of what is

.
