Some Chinese poems

some favourite poems

learned when I was a child

now became

visual images

abstract language

on canvas

What then is a poem

what then is song

a visual reality

accompanied by a heartfelt desire

a childhood memory

a respectful return

to an old path

yet made anew on canvas

( paintings inspired by poems began in 1982 during my postgraduate year in Edinburgh College of Art where my research was on color, chinese calligraphy and poetry )
