SUMI-E

i am ornamented with this thin fine brush,  
were my lines are outlined and mastered by he.  
i am unlike you from other modern sculpture.  
unbound to fly high like the obscure vulture.  
you stop and stare to amaze my view  
as if i was some legend of any kind.  
abstract i say,
resembling a natorous style of talent.  
inkstone creates me of distinct appearance.  
made of oil soot combined with animal glue.  
of a reputation known as  strong bamboo.  
i am within landscapes or flowers..  
so powerful i may be highlited with gold.  
you watch me, with the tools that created me.  
i am unlike you from other modern sculpture.  
unbound to fly high like the obscure vulture.
