The delights of plowed ground with " Green " Japanese calligraphy




   Summer morning has the feeling of the pulse.
   The boiling of the life.

   The upbringing continues without cease.





 
   The morning sun gives the power to paddy-rice.
   The farmers concentrate wisdom at this moment.

   The long history.






   Clouds protect us.
   The wind. That time.

   I will hug the flow.



   夏山の  洗ふたやうな  日の出哉
    小林 一茶 (1763 - 1827)

   In summer mountain  such as washed  the sunrise comes
    Kobayashi Issa (1763 - 1827)







   "緑" (ryoku, or midori). It is translated as Green.
   This character is written by Kanzi, semi-cursive script.

   Etymology : Phono-semantic compound
    semantic : 糸 (thread)  +  phonetic : 录 (record)


     万緑の  中や吾子の歯  生え初むる
      中村 草田男 (1901 - 1983)

     Myriad green leaves  my child's tooth  began to grow   
      Nakamura Kusatao (1901 - 1983)


   All grows up.
   They are our great joy.

   This color symbolizes it.

   This scene is a rustic farm in remote areas.


   The fragrance of the soil forever.
   Here is south of Shimabara, Nagasaki prefecture.

  17. Dla dzieciaków to świetna zabawa (wiem bo pracuję z takimi maluchami). Jednak dla dorosłych ciężka praca. Z tego co wiem dalej się to robi ręcznie. Podobno wiąże się to z różnymi chorobami ukąszeniami owadów i węży.
    Piękne irysy poniżej.
    Pozdrawiam. U mnie jeszcze lipiec.

  22. I love summer in Japan's countryside. (Not so much in Tokyo! ^^) So many people complain about the heat and the humidity, but to me summer is green, quiet, tranquil and fertile. The green of the rice paddies is the most intense, beautiful green in the world! Thanks for this lovely post.

  57. You always post such beautiful scenic photos. One of the things I so enjoyed
    during my last of two visits to Japan was seeing the rice growing in the prefecture of
    Akita. The vast fields of green were so lovely - and the sake made from that rice was
    exquisite. My nurse friends from there told me it is the best in all of Japan. I am
    not sure about that but it was certainly good!!!

    Hope you are well. Here in Jaipur, it has been miserably hot and the long awaited monsoons
    have not arrived.

    Passei por aqui, para lê o seu blogue.



    Admirável. Harmonioso. Eu também estou montando um. Não tem as Cores e as Nuances do Vosso. Mas, confesso que é uma página, assim, meia que eclética. Hum... bem simples, quase Simplória. E outra vez lhe afirmo. Uma página autentica e independente. Estou lhe convidando a Visitar-me, e se possível Seguirmos juntos por Eles. Certamente estarei lá esperando por você, com o meu chapeuzinho em mãos ou na cabeça.
    Insisto que vá Visitar-me, afinal, o que vale são os elos dos sorrisos.

  64. Maravillosos campos de arroz, naturaleza, color, belleza. Nubes que deambulan sobre un cielo vibrante de azul intenso.
    Alegría de los niños que aprenden a sembrar el arroz sobre la madre tierra que nos da sus frutos…
    Que tengas un feliz verano Ruma.

  65. gorgeous impression, my dear friend ...


    "Sommer

    Ihr singt von schönen Frühlingstagen,
    Von Blütenduft und Sonnenschein,
    Ich will nichts nach dem Frühling fragen,
    Nein Sommer, Sommer muß es sein.

    Wo alles drängt und sich bereitet
    Auf einen goldnen Erntetag,
    Wo jede Frucht sich schwellt und weitet
    Und schenkt, was Süßes in ihr lag.

    Auch ich bin eine herbe, harte,
    Bin eine Frucht, die langsam reift.
    O Glut des Sommers, komm! Ich warte,
    Daß mich dein heißer Atem streift.

    by Gustav Falke"

  95. A Paz em Cristo, gostei muito das suas palavras.


    Com carinho para você!

    SALMO 23

    O SENHOR É MEU PASTOR,
    Isto é relacionamento!

    NADA ME FALTARÁ,
    Isto é suprimento!

    CAMINHAR ME FAZ EM VERDES PASTOS,
    Isto é descanso!

    GUIA-ME MANSAMENTE A ÁGUAS TRANQUILAS,
    Isto é refrigério!

    REFRIGERA A MINHA ALMA,
    Isto é cura!

    GUIA-ME PELAS VEREDAS DA JUSTIÇA,
    Isto é direção!

    POR AMOR DO SEU NOME,
    Isto é propósito!

    AINDA QUE EU ANDE PELO VALE DA SOMBRA DA MORTE,
    Isto é provação!

    EU NÃO TEMEREI MAL ALGUM,
    Isto é proteção!

    PORQUE TU ESTÁS COMIGO,
    Isto é fidelidade!

    A TUA VARA E O TEU CAJADO ME CONSOLAM,
    Isto é disciplina!

    PREPARAS UMA MESA PERANTE MIM NA PRESENÇA DOS MEUS INIMIGOS,
    Isto é esperança!

    UNGE A MINHA CABEÇA COM ÓLEO,
    Isto é consagração!

    E MEU CÁLICE TRANSBORDA,
    Isto é abundância!

    CERTAMENTE QUE A BONDADE E A MISERICÓRDIA ME SEGUIRÃO TODOS OS DIAS DE MINHA VIDA,
    Isto é benção!

    E EU HABITAREI NA CASA DO SENHOR,
    Isto é segurança!

    POR LONGOS DIAS,
    Isto é eternidade!

    Que o Senhor te abençoe e te guarde!
