Beautiful Snow

Beautiful Snow

7'x5', satin, kimono and other cloth, 2000

The artist’s wife’s name is Miyuki which means “beautiful snow”. She was named for her December 18th winter birthdate. The artist, too, shares that same birthday.

Your time here is fleeting
in your pretty white gown
so dance through the trees
and swirl through the town
The moon is in hiding
behind low bending
pines and covers her
pale face as she
watches you shine
The sun too is waiting
behind mountains to
rise and melt your pure
heart with his powerful eyes
Your time here is fleeting
so dance while you can
for soon you become rivers
that wash over the sand
