Poem’s Corner – Kyoto

We stroll through rooms filled with jewels,
Gazing at silk screens
As the water stone’s music emerges through the silence.
A few lines dance on a soft thread describing a scribe
Connecting peacocks and pheasants in brilliant colors.
Behind the veils, a banner of golden leaves
Greet chrysanthemums in white blooms
As linear sequences of trees and wintry bridges line up to the moon.

The poem and the painting, “Sijo”, a haiku like form of Korean poetry by Marsha Solomon.
