Tei KOBAYASHI

concept:
passages,inconstant forms
disciplines of the past enter the present
priorities shift within historic moments
a reminiscent pause
poetic transience flows
timelessness, peace and serenity

poems on paper. gold and silver glimmer from each. poetic notes of passage. rest a moment, breathe.
