Paintings are accompanied by the author's poems. Translated into English by Andrey Kneller

Painting on Xuan paper, 84 x 60 cm, 2005




One tune, one melody is heard

In music that’s been improvised.


An old man, bending to the bird,

Sings out the same song with his eyes.


Enframing their duet, a pine

Brings them together in accord.


And heeding symbols of the time,

I listen in, without a word.
