Painting on Xuan paper, 68 x 60 cm, 2002. Sold
A lotus, swaying in the zephyr,
Created calligraphic signs,
How beautiful was every letter
Penned in poetic, lengthy lines!
It bended slightly, reemerging
As beauty, purity and love
And silent hymns had started surging
As lotus grew, and reached above.
