"willow tree" calligraphy
Without a brush
The willow paints the wind.
We brushed this haiku in class Tuesday. My calligraphy here is somewhat willow-like, breeze-lifted. While we were in class, outdoors there was great wind. We were under a tornado warning!
Saryu's surname and his lifespan's dates are not known, evidently (unless you know them). This haiku is from a book from The Art Institute of Chicago, Zen Haiku, selections and translations by Jonathan Clements.
