Pining For You
"Pining For You - acrylic on cradled wood panel, 12” x 24” x .75”. Ready to hang (sides are painted; no need to frame. Hanging wire is attached)
I stand at the base of a vast, winding tree deep within the gorge. The top is invisible - part of a wide sky. The trunk twists and turns, chasing sun and rain over decades, just as I lift my face to sun and sky and this tree.
Pining for you
who do not come,
I am like the salt-making fires
at dusk on the Bay of Waiting -
burning bitterly in the flames of love.
Fujiwara no Teika, One Hundred Poets, One Poem Each
