Children's Day, May 5  with " Child " Japanese calligraphy



   The gentle breeze expresses dreams in a blue sky.
   The carp is the lucky creature.


   They celebrate for children every year in this season.





   The pretty eyes continue staring at the fluttering forever.
   Without getting tired.


   You are hope itself.





   The holiday May 5 is Children's Day.
   There is the future in your hand.


   God bless you.




    おもしろく  ふくらむ風や  鯉幟
      正岡 子規  (1867 – 1902)


    interestingly  wind swell out  carp streamer  
      Masaoka Shiki  (1867 – 1902)








    "" (shi, or ko). It is translated as offspring, child, son, daughter, love, etc.
   This character is written by Kanzi, Regular script. 

   Pictogram
   The image of a baby, with a large head and supple arms or legs.

   The love of the parent seems to be given in this letter.
   The shape. The sound of the words.


   They remind me of gentleness.
   I pray so that all children are healthy and happy.







    風吹けば  来るや隣の  鯉幟 
     高浜 虚子  (1874 – 1959)

    If wind blows  the next door's  carp streamer approaches
     Kyoshi Takahama  (1874 – 1959)

  5. I did not know the symbolism of those fishes.
    Great for all the children.
    The flying colors in the sky make me feel happy : as if I find my child's eyes again.
    Your third photo is very expressive : the fishes in the sky and a mother
    and her daughter who are going towards the future... like the carps... with
    a gentle breeze I hope...

    Have a good day.
    Thank you for your comments on my blog.
    I am very affected.

    See you soon.
    Pleasure.

  59. Beautiful calligraphy, ruma!
    It's almost palpable the feeling that there's a little... sprout there, who just started growing and who depends on us for nurturing and guidance in order to become a MAN. Similarly, we should "never get tired" to explore and discover the world along with them because yes,the future is in our hands...
    Also the pictures are very beautiful, carrying the mark of the innocence and freshness of youth which the bright coloured flying carps greatly manage to symbolize.

    My warmest greetings and all the best, from Romania!

  62. Yes, the swimming carps in the sky look so full of hope and happiness for the children. The calligraphy representing 'child' is so simple and beautiful, like a child! We celebrate Children's Day in India on November 14, which was the birthday of Mr. Nehru, our first prime minister.

  67. Après une interruption pour raison de santé, je reviens vers toi pour continuer à découvrir les résultats de ta passion,la photographie.
    J'ai souvent vu ces carpes cerf-volant, en France, amenés par des orientaux dans les rassemblements de cerf-volant. J'ai toujours admiré leur "nage dans le vent" qui reste magique. Leurs couleurs attirent beaucoup les touristes, à raison.
    Bravo pour tes photos et belle soirée,
    Amitiés,

  69. Hi Ruma!
    I didn't know May 5th was childrens day. Love the idea of carps in the wind.
    Here in the Netherlands is the 5th of May Liberation day. On that date in 1945 our war ended... May 4th is Commemoration of the dead ...we still remember our dead and still celebrate our freedom ...
    Have a great day celebrating the children's future! And thank you for sharing your ways of life with all of us.
    Hugs Yolanda

  70. Lovely photos and words to the Hope of our future. The view is magnificent! We rarely see carp streamers in the urban areas with many utility wires. In the last photo carp are swimming freely both in the sky and in the pond. I feel as if my heart soaring and swimming with them freely.
