“Winds that Awakened Stars” by Marilyn Wells. Abstract sumi e Original
Abstract sumi e painting Original, Zen style, with ink wash, wet and dry brushstrokes by Marilyn Wells was inspired by
The winds that awakened the stars
are blowing through my blood.
Oh how could I be so calm
when he rose up to depart?
Now words that called up the lightning
are hurtling through my heart.
-W. B. Yeats “Maid Quiet” 1904S
From a Zen point of view, our maid above has allowed suffering to enter her life because of her attachment. Such are the ways we understand love. It is wonderful while it lasts, and nothing lasts, does it? The impermanence, the human condition, everything is always changing.
