Said Sai to the Honinbou

Poetry asks for the best word
Precisely.
Go asks for the best hand
Only.

And yet
and yet.

There is room here
for infinite shapes.
Colours
beyond black and white.
Ladders, that lead to

windows, that open to

Universes

where

Stars wait to be captured

and a god waits patiently    

for company.



Said the Honinbou to Sai

A god asks for the best hand
Precisely.
A hand asks for another hand
Only.

And yet
and yet.

There is room here for
paper fans that carry dreams
calloused fingertips that
carry fragments of
you
from far long ago to    
me
to the
far away future
where
ghosts write imperfect patterns on kaya and paper and
computer screens
where
memory fades but never forgets

completely

the sound of

your voice whispering

                                                shapes that I never knew

                                                                           were poetry.
