On the sign:
NOW, ON MY HEART’S PAGE
THERE IS NO GRID TO GUIDE MY HAND,
NO CHARACTER TO TRACE,
ONLY THE MOISTURE,
THE INK BLUE DEW
THAT HAS DRIPPED FROM
THE LEAVES.
TO SPREAD IT I
CAN’T USE A PEN,
I CAN’T USE A WRITING BRUSH,
CAN ONLY USE MY LIFE’S
GENTLEST BREATH
TO MAKE A SINGLE LINE OF
MARKS WORTH PUZZLING OVER.
GU CHENG (1956 - ), "FOREVER PARTED: GRAVEYARD"

[Gregg LeFevre Signature]
