Calligraphy Polyphony

Calligraphy Polyphony

Chiseled strokes
Worldwide folks
Press and lift
Sway their gift.

Complex rhythms
Swiftly, thumbs
Swash and point
Exult, anoint.

Cursive Script
From Arabic
And Chinese sets
Come lacy, scrolling nets.

Counter points and melodies
Wave and meet
Rhythm’s beat.
