The crescent lights

The misty ground.

Buckwheat flowers.

Sleep on horseback,

The far moon in a continuing dream,

Steam of roasting tea.

Poetry by Basho Matsuo Drawings By KHen Shish

Love the sparse look of "Buckwheat flowers". I took a peek at her,Khen Shishs' gallery web site, and found another I have a fondness for, titled "Longing".
Amazingly was able to print a copy.
Enjoying your blog, as much as ever.

Hello Bill,

i'm very pleased you loved the Khen Shish paintings. the thing i found about the works of art of hers that i love, is that the more i look at them the more i'm attached in a sort of a "spell" entwined in the composition of the imagery, the unicorn the king's crown, the reclined hearts...

a vocabulary that makes one want to know how to speak and feel him self
