" the old man from shanghai "
technique mixte on wood panel
12'h x 36"w

birds sang
as he move gracefully -
an ancient dancer of tai chi.
i wonder in the days of mao , who he was ?
a red book follower ?
an exile of his desire ?
but today the past mattered not .
what mattered was his movement with the sound
of his own rhythm,
content as aged has set him free .

when i grow old,
i shall wear purple and take
my canary for a walk.
