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.
