La Japonesa

  • La Japonesa

     

    Inward eyes  -  tranquillity

    A barca floats, the river running

    Not still but deep

    Oh river running

    The timeless peace is monumental

    This lady`s face is transcendental

    Speaking wordless, worlds in silence

    River running, river running

    The icon so, some graven image

    Flickers in a moment`s sight

    Swiftly passed as birds in flight

    But burnt forever on the mind

    Is still the image, though we`re blind

    Her memory is of our kind.
