Ting Pei

he’s a conjuror

of shapes


tossing triangles

into blue


calling stalks

from the ground


asking water

to dance


rocks to slide

and roll


roofs to bob

like sea birds


he’s a sculptor

            of light



*Ting Pei: architect, designer of many buildings worldwide including the Louvre annexe.
