My latest Sumi e Painting, “My Blossoming Heart”, is a favorite because I feel it in my heart and soul.
“True, I may appear
unkempt like a rotting tree,
jetsam and flotsam,
but on the right occasion
this old heart
can still blossom.”
The Monk Kengú 1874S
Sumi e – “The Space Between Us”
The abstract sumi e, “My Blossoming Heart, from the poem by the Monk Kengú tells us of the spirit that is within. There are times we even recognize one another through spirit, heart to heart, and the physical appearance is secondary to this recognition of souls. I feel this way lots, and sometimes my heart feels very young and prone to being in love. May yours be so as well.
This may relate to one of my recent blog posts, or all my sumi e paintings may just relate together because they do come from heart and soul, not the head and intellect.
