The calligraphy of the English haiku






  I challenged the calligraphy of an English haiku contributed to beautiful blog of JOO "Daily haiku".
  It is printed in Wednesday, October 14, 2009.
  I used this Ink brush of the Japanese calligraphy.

  I felt that this haiku expressed splendor of the freedom of the bird to the ultimate.
  The original of this haiku is the Japanese Zen priest DŌGEN.
  He is one of the best Zen priests in history.
