Artist calligrapher

Calligraphy

Incarnating sounds with a motion of lines
Adjoining the lines in verses
I break the triumph of parting
And I fuse in an ocean of wondrous words.
And then a miracle of unity arose,
There are no centuries, I hear the heart beats.
Pen and paper, the moment of touch —
Cicadas ring and the hands shiver, all in letters.
