Study of an Oil

A Tibetan mother
pours hot milk into a bowl
held with both hands
by a young boy.
They stand in a dark room
by an open fire,
both warmly dressed—
he in blue shirt and
knee length leather vest,
she in faded red tunic,
long brown skirt and apron.
They are bent toward each other,
intent on not spilling.
Pale light from a window or door
touches the back of his vest,
the top of his hair, her face,
the stream of milk.
Outside, unseen:
mountains, snow,
the biting pure air
of the Himalayas.
