Notes to Lady Murasaki - March 23rd, 2017


A mystery of folded time
crossing the wild and careless sea
paper boats sailing safely before
a wind of blue iris
a voice so sustained, so low
          and the murmur of a bamboo flute
caressing your message on silken paper
          covered again and precisely marked
living calligraphy,
Lady Murasaki

                    “I was here; I knew beauty.”
