BegIn This World
 
In this world
love has no color -
yet how deeply
my body
is stained by yours.

Knot in plain
but intricate-
shades of life
your love
my hearts pallet.

With broad strokes
to capture you
I paint my soul
my love
coloured by you.

In this world
life has no color
yet how deeply
our love
arrayed brilliance.


In This World,
by Izumi Shikibu
*first verse-first three
lines 4th verse
