I’m a wanderer  
so let that be my name –  
the first winter rain

痛みと悲しみの世界
さくら満開
今でも

-Kobayashi Issa 

(A world of grief and pain.
Flowers bloom, 
even then)

jibadojo:

Now in sad autumn
As I take my
Darkening path…
A solitary bird

 A poem I wrote in japanese class last semester, it won second place in the entire Japanese department and was hung up in the office :D

"Not many people seem to know that Chinese or Japanese calligraphy has nothing to do with writing pretty characters, but instead it is all about expressing oneself through art. Zenei Shodo is a spiritual art of arranging space around black lines of characters or images, brought to even higher levels, where fuss over aesthetics, being comprehended in common fashion, is irrelevant, and hence, virtually nonexistent.”

The inōs taught me:

" ‘Mu-shin’ roughly translates as "no mind".  However, it does not mean "no thoughts".  

When thoughts arise, simply allow them to pass through consciousness unobstructed, and begin your breath count again at one.”
