    Mountain stream in autumn ...

    ... imitating the look of a hanging scroll ... my heavy-handed calligraphy in the upper right records a phrase borrowed from the Song dynasty poet Xin Qiji, and means, "I want to say something, but can't":


    Young, didn't know what sorrow was,
    climbed the tower,
    the top of the tower,
    made up poems, new words for sorrow

    Now I know what sorrow is,
    I want to say something, but can't,
    I want to say something,
    I ... This autumn the weather is quite chilly

    Xin Qiji (1140 - 1207)

    A moving poetry and an evocative painting. The graphical value of the ideograms add to it.
    I can empathically share his sorrow, due to my age, but I always feel a little sad and some bitterness nonetheless in front of great lyrics where no spark of hope blinks to heal our soul ...
